Woodland Blooms

About this design:

Created for the January 2014 Art Bead Scene challenge. Loved the inspiration artwork and got busy right away! I think this is one that I'll end up keeping for me.

You can read more over on my blog:


The focal is a lovely lampwork bead by Firelily Glass (Etsy); lampwork spacers from The Spacer Bead Shop and Beadygirl Beads, Czech glass, Mookaite, Rainbow Fire Agate, and lucite beads; chain, findings, and Woodland Leaf from Vintaj (most from Lima Beads). Earrings are Vintaj Woodland leaf charms and findings paired with Czech glass flowers

    So beautiful in every respect. I thought how lovely that the leaves look like hearts. Who says valentines have to be red! :)

    Oh so pretty. I love the way you paid “homage” to the lampwork with your selection of pretty colored beads. They look wonderful in contrast to the dark metal. I love a longer necklace,and it has such nice balance.

    This is just a “Wow”, Sarajo ! Love everything about it, particularly how you layered the flower beads over the leaf pendant.
