It's been forever since I've done one of the Art Bead Scene challenges, since it's my game - I should probably start playing along again.
It's always fun and inspiring to see what we can create from the featured art work. This month was a watercolor painting called "Jackknife Village" by Franklin Carmichael from 1926. Loved the sun-bleached hues, tiny houses and mix of textures.
So let's drool over these beads again, shall we? The lampwork beads were a gift from my very sweet friend Genea of Genea Beads. Oh my, are they heavenly. I love that focal bead with a fierce passion! Genea has always been creating textured lampwork beads she is calling beach stones - love them.
I paired the lampwork beads up with one of my polymer clay urchins and a house bead. That nautulis clasp is from Green Girl Studios. The design is simply strung with some mystery blue stone - amazonite maybe? Sunstone faceted briolettes, orange adventurine and a kieshe pearl. Yep, just one. Oh and some tiny faceted stones that are another mystery. Seriously, keep records Ms. Heather.
Art Bead Scene Challenge - still a few days to enter the challenge but the blog hop deadline is today.
