Amuse Your Muse Mondays with Rebecca of Songbead

Hello! Can you believe we are now more than halfway through December? Scary thought! If you are anything like me, you will still have a lot to do before you can relax…..

So, without further ado, onto our Snow and Ice art beads…..

First up, these beautiful Fir Tree charms from Mary Harding:

I just love the painterly quality that all of Mary's work has. You can practically reach out and touch the snow on these! They remind me of Narnia somehow - that moment where Lucy first makes her way through the wardrobe and the fur coats, to the snow….magical and wintery. 

Next up, Fulgorine shared her 'Arctic Necklace', complete with her own handmade polymer beads. The pendant reminds me of shattered ice…..beautiful! 

And I found this beautiful icicle lampwork bead on etsy, from My Happy Hobby in Russia:

It's a big-hole bead, so could fit a 'you-know-what' bracelet - but wouldn't it be just a fabulous pendant to a necklace? I love the texture to it - it doesn't just look like an icicle, but like melting ice - absolutely stunning work!

And now for the BeadBlogger Links:
