Misty Cedars


These are some of the tree beads I made the other day - I think they have a "scrimshaw" look about them, and they are very popular at the local market.  I make them in black, red and a muted green, but these ivory ones always turn out the best - maybe because the ivory glass reacts with the silver and gets a mottled appearance.

They are meant to represent the Cedar tree - which grows in abundance around here.  We have lots on our property, and I think I am allergic to the pollen!

I am supposed to be at the Friday market today, but I wimped out - it's raining - so I am going to have to do pennance and get out to the studio and make beads (some penalty - LOL).

Have a great weekend!
