This was my piece for the Oklahoma Bead Society bead challenge last year.  Outside the realm of my usual seed bead romps, it combines wire wrapping and semi precious stones with metal embossing and patination.  I love wearing it.  It won the Intermediate division in the contest.  I titled it "In the Forest of my Childhood Imagination".  I've forever loved the deep green of forests and in my childhood often imagined that fairies, like the ones in the necklace, lived within.  Must be the influence of my Irish-Scottish blood on my father's side.

I really, really like this piece. Those orange and green cabs are really outstanding against the antique hues of the rest of the necklace. Lovely!
