I'm really in love with this bead. Its not really all that spectacular or technical but it speaks to me. My torch mate has a blue pottery vase that sits in between us on the table. I love its two-tone blue glaze and decided to make a bead using it as inspiration. Towards the end of the bead I decided it was too plain and added dots that I raked. It came out looking like a garden. I've made a thousand beads but never had a favorite. So I am proclaiming this as my very favorite.
