This is a very lacy piece and has a wonderful handcarved bone fish bead as the central focus bead. I have used all sorts of wonderful elements in this piece. you will see fresh water pearls , rustic hand crafted sea glass beads from Africa, vintage crystals, czech glass beads, seed beads, and various shell beads.
I have created the closure using a vintage glass button with a beaded loop at the opposite end.
Onan Autumn note, my garden is still blooming and gifting me with wonderful treasures daily!! My Belinda's Dream Rose is loaded with blossoms and will give us one more round of blooms before aw ell desreved winter rest. She just never quits!!!
My Toad Lillies are also putting on quite a show this year. This is a very unusual plant that sports woderfully speckled blossoms all along the arching stems.
These beauties thrive in dappled shade and spread via seedlngs. You hardly notice the foliage as it grows amoung the other plants , till the blossoms appear when everything else is really winding down!!
The Monarchs and Swallow Tails are still making daily visits to feed on the last Zinnia's and cosmos before continueing on their long migrations. They really seem to prefer these rich Red Zinnias over all of the others. The intensity of the color is really amazing.
Unfortunately this may be the last year for the Sugar Maple in our front yard. THere are very large areas that never leafed out this year and I ahve put a call in to the Tree Dr to see if there is anything that we can do to save it. I adore Sugar maples- they remind me of home in New England. I am keeping my fingers crossed that there will be something that we can do for it!!
