When working with acrylics I'll often spend a session just preparing backgrounds and get so enamored of the resulting colors and textures that I find it hard to move on. Taking photos of these backgrounds can often result in color schemes for paintings at a later date and are a visual treat for me. Glass is another medium that shows color at its' best. I love wearing this necklace. Each glass bead is made on my torch and annealed in a kiln for strength and durability and the chain is forged sterling silver.
