OPHELIA





I made this necklace for the Art Bead Scenes June challenge, and really love how it filled up with so many goodies. The pendant and the green washer shaped bead, as well as the round cream bead are all from Yolanda's Clay. I love how they are so organic and natural looking.
The faceted carnelian bead is one of my favorite strands, and I use them sparingly, hoping they will never run out! The gorgeous seed beads were a gift from my friend Dorthe , they catch the light perfectly. I used black galvanized steel wire to put this together, making it more economical.
Hope everyone is staying cool this week, and staying safe in the heat. Thanks for your visit and for taking a peek!
