I just love this piece of artwork and it is the inspiration for the February Art Bead Scene challenge. I kinda knew what I wanted to make but it didn't work out. Obviously I needed some new beads to inspire me so I went shopping on Etsy and found a new to me lampwork artist Rosemarie Hanus and her wonderful shop Spawn of Flame. I mean look at these beads that I picked up! How can I not be inspired.
As soon as they arrive and I make my pretty I will be sure to share it with you all.
