I've been itching to paint the new disc beads I picked up at Brimfield this fall but I wanted to do something different than my other pieces. less intricate patterns in a fresh palette. not too fall or too summer - very versatile and wearable. I happened on the August Empress blog today where she features the beads and watercolors of artist Emily Green. There's something about the "camille" necklace on her green and turquoise watercolor - a stunning combination and very inspiring.
