Seasons hook bookmark

Sometimes, inspiration strikes most unexpectedly.

Take, for instance, its recent visit. I was just minding my business that day - it was an ordinary day and I was doing ordinary things, except, a song kept playing in my head and just won't quit. It was Seasons In The Sun by Terry Jack. (This song was very popular in the 70s - Westlife recorded an updated version in 1999.)

I don't know how or why ... but it struck me as good idea to make a hookmark based on the title of that song. Seasons In The Sun.

More pix and info here.

I shortened the name to Seasons as I don't want to copy the entire name.

The round thingies are shell disks, dyed into various colours. Each colour
represents a season. From left: Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter.

The dangly seed beads represent the seasons as well. They are to
complement the shell disks.

The last bead at the bottom (right) is a crystal bead.

I honestly don't know whether I like this creation or not. Just not sure. However, I do really like the shell disks, which I think are unique.

By the way, if you've never heard the song Seasons In The Sun, here are the vids. Enjoy. :)

I like your new hookmark. The Season's are beautifully illustrated using the discs. Very imaginative and artistic!

Thank you, B. :) I'm glad someone (you!) likes it. :) I've had the shell disks for a while now, and was glad to be able to use them in a project. They're really pretty in their various colours. :)
