About this design:

This is my entry for the April Art Bead Scene challenge. I'm in some serious need of real spring and Mother Nature does not want to cooperate here in Minnesota...this bright little necklace helps!

You can read more about my design and see the inspiration art over on my blog at:


Ceramic flower pendant by Tracee Dock of The Classic Bead (Etsy); Seed beads; recycled glass rounds in shamrock; aqua colored crystals; Tierra Cast silver plated spacers; antiqued silver plate chain, clasp, and jump rings by Nunn Design.

    This may help remind Mother Nature what she’s SUPPOSED to be doing…

    :) Love Eeka’s comment! I am here in frozen MN, too. Today there is sun and 45 degrees. Tomorrow into Thursday we get more SNOW! Sarajo, you need to wear this outside so Mother Nature takes notice! Love it!!!

    So pleasing to the eye, Sarajo! That lovely pendant and the balance in design and color. Monet would be pleased, I think!

    Thanks so much everyone! I have been wearing this one outside but it hasn’t made an impression on Mother Nature yet. Becky, I’m not looking forward to the round of icky weather we’re supposed to be getting later this week either…at least we had some sun yesterday!
