Wednesday, 5.13.19: Frida Kahlo Day!
If there ever was an inspiration in Kate's artistic life, Frida is it! You can find bits and pieces of Frida in so much of Kate's work, from her metalsmithing to beadshop projects and more!
The latest beadshop project would be these Crescent Fan Earrings, which Kate named....Frida!! The bright colors really lend themselves to this beautiful design first brought to us by Design Team member Danielle Wickes. We've just added this project to our Project Pages today! So if you want to create your own, just head right here to the Frida Earrings page!
On Kate's last birthday we even made a Frida Mix for a giveaway! We called it Frida's Fiesta. Want to recreate it? You can...here's what Kate used in creating this mix:
Some of my favorite Frida-inspired pieces come from Kate's metalsmithing bench. Earrings, rings, even a bolo! All worth of Frida herself, and of course with Kate's signature flair.
Live on the air today (seen in the video below) Kate created a tassel based off this Free Tip Friday episode. The items she used in her tassel today are:
1 Pair Palace Caps- Antique Brass
1 Pkg UltraSuede- Bordeaux
2 Czech Glass Flower Beads- Hibiscus 21 Dandelion Picasso
5mm Jump Rings
8/0 Seed Beads - 8-355
2" Eye Pins- Antique Brass
Ear Wires or a Jumbo Swivel if you're making a purse charm
