The theme that won for the upcoming Bead Fest:
Half Past Midnight – Chosen by Mel
Being the Autumn Fest, the nights are drawing in and Halloween, Harvest
Festival, Thanksgiving and later Christmas are all on the horizon. That made me
think of the theme “Half Past Midnight”.
Half Past Midnight could be anything to do with the night either factual such as
owls, moonlight, starlight or using beading to capture the effect of light from
lit up pumpkins, candles and firelight. It could also be used to enter the
fantasy world of witches, lucky black cats, ghosts and ghouls or even skulls
which seem to be in fashion at the moment. The choice would be yours. Those are
just suggestions of how a theme of Half Past Midnight could be used but there
are probably countless other ways to get the feeling of the autumn and winter
You could either be literal in your interpretation and have pumpkins etc in the
designs or you could simply capture the theme by use of colours and textures
such as midnight blues, oranges, and blacks etc. Jewellery and other items would
also be extremely marketable for all the parties and celebrations which people
are likely to have through the coming months both autumn and winter.
