Almond Blossoms

Almond Blossoms #2
Originally uploaded by HollysFollyGlass
Well, I did it! If you read my post yesterday, you already know I was running late with my Art Bead Scene entry. And I woke up with a dream of how to design the piece! In the end, the aqua bellflower wasn't enough but this Evil Dark Purple one was! It added the punch of pink I felt the focal lacked.

This March Art Bead Scene contest, inspired by the Van Gogh painting called Almond Blossoms.

ABOUT THE BEADS: The art glass beads were handmade by me, Holly Dare of Holly's Folly ~ Glass. The focal is made of layers of opaque and transparent teal glass for depth. The flowers are white with a bit of pink. I didn't want the pink to overpower the piece.

The Bellflower dangle is an opaque pink on stainless steel wire.

ABOUT THE PENDANT: The upper part is a wired wonder! The flower petal shaped bail, the roller coaster swirl and the large hammered flower are all ONE piece of sterling wire! I carried out the flower motif with a smaller hammer wire flower dangling from the large one. The bellflower dangle completes the piece.

In my efforts to continue to educate the folks about the wonderful Revolution Money Exchange, I am offering this pendant at a $10 discount to anyone who checks out using RME. The Revolution Money Exchange does not take money from vendors for using it's services (or from customers either!) It's FREE for both parties!!! Help a struggling artist keep more of her hard earned money and save money too! That's a bargain all around! Here it's $45.00. When I move it to my website the price will be $55.

I see you noticed the EDP was the perfect pink/purple for that colour combo too!
