I love this. I love the colors, I love what you have done with this, and I love that you call it a forest spirit.
Interestingly, when I came to your page I realized that my daughter watches your stuff and I belief she has purchased some. My daughter is Skye Trinity.

That sounds like my mom too. She is a gardener and herbal healer and especialy crazy.
You can see some more of my beads on my blog. Though this one is special cause I added gem chips to the clay.

I love all the colours here and I think the way the lines and colours flow into each other and are not overly defined and detailed makes the bead more dreamy and gives a perfect mystic setting for the forest spirit theme! :D

Thank you. I put alot of detail work in these and its sometimes hard to realy show them well. I think this in one os my better ones. maybe layers of color and glaze with scratching in between.

It's beautiful! I love how old it looks, and almost wet like a rainforest frog! I seriously thought it was at first, until the underside of it was shown. Marvelous work!
