More new beads…

Delicate ruffled anemone wildflowers with speckles, stripes, and a little carving on the backs… and of course, more painting! This time in coppery brown and golden orange with deep rose and plum.

I love how the flowers have a shadowy, painterly feel with these beads. I'm really enjoying these new painting experiments and seeing how they turn out with smooth finished surfaces!

These beads were inspired by the wild wood anemones that are blooming now. And… I had originally planned for a woodland wildflower look, but these beads took on a little bit of a seaside feel instead… with the stripes and long pointed shape paired with the sandy ivory color they somehow remind me of seashells… but maybe that's just me…
I did save aside just a few for myself and I think I will make a long necklace, with maybe a fringe or something tassel-y… :-)

I hope you enjoy creating with them!

Leftover scraps and a little splash of paint, made for perfectly coordinated round beads!

See them all in my shop here!
