This project is named Tragic Heroines because the girl with the red dress reminded me of one of my favorite movie scenes. I am sure you know the scene: Lucy Westenra walking into the garden to fornicate with Dracula on a stone altar, from the 1992 classic, directed by Francis Ford Coppola. Lucy of course becomes a wildly unsuccessful vampire and gets beheaded, but her character steals the show from a very prim and proper Mina. Of course the image doesn't have anything to do with the movie and the dress was a lot more orange and our Lucy was a redhead, but these are small details when a mental leap has already been made.
The girl with the seahorse was a lot harder to find a name for, if these were to be named after tragic movie heroines... Underwater, but not merperson. Not dead either, not drowned, who should I name this one after? Thought about Guillermo del Toro's The Shape of Water. Sweet Elisa falls in love with an amphibian fella and in the end goes on to live with him in the water. Since both are shot first, I think she qualifies as somewhat tragic too. This movie's whole feel is all aquatic, green and blue with some red so the bracelet does not resemble anything of the "feel", but hey, naming projects is not the easiest task.
Both cabs are square and about 30mm. The shape of the bracelet repeats this pointy, angular look. Clean, crisp lines and some cool, 3D layers are juxtaposed against the organic garden like pattern that fills the sides.
Beadslide clasps complete the clean, modern look in silver. On both colorways.
Kits for this project includes all the materials to complete one bracelet as pictured such as all the Japanese beads, focals, clasp, Italian metallic lambskin, intructions, foundation, Czech shaped beads. Attendees will need to bring their own basic supplies such as beading thread, needle, scissors and E6000 glue, white gel pen, beading surface, light and magnification as needed. For thread I tend to use 8lb test Nanofil in low vis green. Attendees may use whatever else they like using for their bead embroidery. Examples of other thread include but aren't limited to OneG in matching colors, Fireline 6lb test in smoke, Nymo.For needle I tend to use Tulip size 11s, everything else attendees prefer will be just fine.
Kit price for Tragic Heroines: $145 + $5 for shipping it 4 weeks before the travel date.
Policy regarding kits: Attendees are responsible for making sure they bring the kit with them. Shall the kit be lost in the mail, I offer a 100% free replacement. However, once the kit reaches the attendee, the attendee is responsible for bringing it and all its contents to the event. In case the attendee forgets the kit or part of it, they may purchase another one during class. I will have a limited number of replacements available with me available for purchase, shall this come to pass.
