Fox in Winter Forest

About this design:

We've had deep snow since December. One evergreen outside my window is a kind of gauge of how much snow fell the night before. (How much much green?) I've seen a fox on the fence--okay, it wasn't winter, but that's imagination, right?

    Love the Tree Agate and the Howlite combination! I immediately thought of snow on evergreen trees before I even read the description. The little fox is adorable as are the hanging branches.

    Stunned!! I am just stunned. I just don’t *see* beads the way you do Laud. This necklace looks perfect for.a fairy-tale.

    I pictured trees with snow on them and tried to recreate the sensation with stones, sort of like paint strokes. The only problem was figuring out how to get clumps to simulate branches. The chain worked out as a nice backdrop.

    PERFECTION… again! Laud, how do you keep coming up with such breath-taking pieces? I love the little stick-twigs in between the green tree stone beads. :)

    You really succeeded spot-on in creating that wintry feel! I get the feeling it would be cold against my neck… we have snow here too, so it’s not hard to imagine!
