Almond blossom

I made these beads in response to the March monthly challenge on Art Bead Scene. I can't make floral beads for the life of me so I haven't gone for representing the blossoms themselves but I flatter myself that the colours in the beads match the Van Gogh picture pretty well and so that's where I've taken my inspiration from.

As you can see, I have made a start on turning them into jewellery, hopefully I'll get a nice piece made and photographed before the end of the week!

I made several of these beads too yesterday, beads that are largely transparent are are beggars to photograph so sorry about the reflections but hopefully you get an idea of what they look like "in person".


Thanks so much for visiting, I love it when people leave me messages!
