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!
