Seafoam, Sand and Flora


About this design:

Please give me any name suggestions because I know mine is lame. ;)

I've had these seafoam beads forever, but couldn't decide on how to use them because the copper on the top and bottom was throwing me off. I finally came up with this scheme. I added a pistachio leaf and flower to tie them all in.

Components:

Soapstone and strech cord from my stash. Fire polished seafoam and honey picasso Czech glass rondelles, Czech glass leaf and flowers, Picture Jasper, TierraCast spacers and leaf charm all from LB.

    Love the earthy neutral colors with the sea foam touches. And you’re copper wire wrapping adds great color. Love this one!

    Gorgeous! As mentioned above, it really does instill a sense of peace and tranquility when you look at it. Love the softness with a hint of earthiness, really a beautiful piece. I’m horrible with names- I have an 800 page handwritten book that has a “still to be determined” title….heh. No matter what you name it, a rose is still a rose, and this piece will still be just as lovely.
