Organic Obsession

I am a little obsessed with this bracelet...or should I say with the art bead. Kate of Studio Artbead makes the most incredible pieces from polymer clay. I was drawn to the texture and color of this great bead. I knew it had to be a stand alone kind of piece so I paired it with other organic beads, wood, bone and Tibetan beads all in the same hue, so the color could be appreciated. A few turquoise beads are added in the back.
Kate describes this bead...."Like a a field of wildflowers, this fresh unopened spray of dill flowers creates that look. Of perhaps Queen Anne's lace waving in the afternoon sunlight".

You can find Organic Obsession in my Flap Your Wings Etsy shop.

  1. Really cool focal but even cooler bracelet! Love all the wood beads, gives it an earthy feel. That's neat how the focal is decorated on both sides.

  7. Oh Judy! I love what you did with my humble organic bead! It looks great in the wonderful setting you created for it! I love the beads you choose and the earthiness they add to it. And the antiqued copper the perfect accent. I am honored to have my bead in such wonderful artistic hands! And thank you for such kind encouraging words!
