I wish I could send you all a strand of these gorgeous stones. The tag just reads "mother of pearl". I almost hate to seperate them, they look so pretty all strung together.
The thing is, I think each one could be showcased as a mini work of art. As a matter of fact, I learned quite a bit about mini works of art during the Artiscape event I attended recently. I didn't realize the popularity of creating journals and artist trading cards.
Looking through the showroom/studio at European Papers was quite an eye opener. There were so many interesting and cool tools and supplies that I had never seen before. There was a tiny little artist canvas probably 2 inches square that could be displayed on a little easel.
Wouldn't it be fun to display a cool bead on an easel as a miniature work of art. I'm thinking I should have bought one of those easels so I could convert it to a display piece for a single bead!! What do you think? I'm sure someone will let me know when I've crossed the line!!
Have a good one!!
