Here's to you, Bev Doolittle

About this design:

I've had this focal for so long I don't even know the name of the stone! But it reminded me of Bev Doolittle's paintings - you know, where you have to look in the aspen forest and see the camoflaged Indians on pintos? Finally had an idea, which also required me to make my own coil beads. I'm happy with the result!

    Thank you, lovely ladies! :D

    My favorite Bev Doolittle is a snow covered aspen forest, and in the middle is a red fox – if I had had a red fox charm, I probably would have glued him in the middle!

Add your thoughts!
