Art Bead Scene June Reveal

I just loved this color palette for this month's Art Bead Scene Challenge. It seemed very fresh and light and I found the perfect beads on Etsy to represent the yellow roses. The shop name is Ordinary Women and she has some nice polymer clay beads.
I also had some Czech Glass in the turquoisey color of her dress and some perfect thorn beads. I used some chips of adventurine(?) to mimic her braids and I found in my stash a Diane Hawkey word bead that summed up the whole feeling... Harmony. I love the symbolism of roses and thorns and how they live in harmony with each other.  



Thanks for looking and check out the ART BEAD SCENE blog for more!

  3. Thank you so much for your nice comment on my bracelet.
    I love how you used the inspiration picture to such good effect I think the yellow rose beads are just perfect and you rarely get a rose without the thorns, altogether a very thoughtful interpretation.
