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!
