Perfect Pairings :: Alison Adorns + Diane Hawkey

Aside from the spot-on colors in this piece, I was drawn most to the word bead by Diane Hawkey. I always have about a dozen of them in my stash just waiting for the right time. After the events that have been happening in my life and in the world, and most specifically in Orlando (I just returned from there yesterday), this sentiment really grabbed at my soul. And I think that it is a word that perfectly embodies the spirit of this lovely art image as well. There is a serenity and harmony in the face of that woman swathed in turquoise robes, surrounded by sweet smelling roses, something I think that everyone could use a dose of right about now.

We are now using Pinterest! 
You can find more details in this post about the exciting new changes,
including a board devoted to art beads inspired by the monthly challenge!
(Ooh! Look! More pretty beads to lust after!)

Pretty please make sure that you post a link in your Pinterest description
so that I have someplace to attribute the picture! 
And don't forget to tell us about those art beads - providing links to bead makers is appreciated!

Deadline June 28th to get your pictures posted to the Pinterest boards for the creation of the Monthly Challenge Recap post for June 30th.

TIP: If you upload your photo rather than pin it from your blog or shop, edit the pin (the little pencil button) and add your link as the source. Save your edits. This will allow us to click directly on your photo and go to your blog or shop to read more about your entry. If you don't, I might not be able to access the photo to share it.
