This is my entry for the Art Bead Scene...
I so loved the colors in this picture and just the pictures its self. These gorgeous artisan lampwork beads pick up the flow of grey, silver, blue and purple colors in the woman's dress as well as the soft greens in the landscape.

The metallic designs in the lampwork beads, also, pick up a similar feel from the skirt.  The colors in the freshwater pearls, crystals and smaller lampwork beads are the accent colors in the painting as in the bracelet.  This bracelet is made with a generous amount of sterling silver adding to the richness and silver in her flowing wrap.

Thank you for stopping by....
