More Petra Inspirations....

About this design:

I have a large stash of Petra's ceramics in pairs. She does a lot of blues and greens which happen to suit me just fine, so much so that I have duplicate designs because I couldn't decide between the colors.


Ceramics by Petra at Scorched Earth, All other components: crystals, Czech glass, Vintaj parawire, copper shell chain, etc. are from right here at LB!

    Wow,Becky..I’d really love to see some of those up close. The blue and green with the shells and crystals(?) are my favs. I know the focals are ceramic,but they look like glass. They’re so interesting to look at. Beautiful work!
