Back in May I participated in the monthly Art Bead Scene challenge. The editorial team selects an inspiration image and posts it at the beginning of the month, along with background information and even a colour palette to inspire. The requirement is to use an art bead (or more) in the design. That month the challenge was based on a painting, the Capriccio Padovano by Bernardo Bellato, painted in 1741:
My necklace, Tinted Moss, was based on a Lampwork Glass drop bead made by DragonJools of Toronto.
My entry was selected in a random draw (they don’t judge your work after all – the prizes are for participating) and I won 3 Simple Truth pendants from Tesori Trovati. The artist behind this shop and these creations is Erin Prais-Hintz.
Life happens and Erin had a lot on her plate this year, and as a result was late sending her package out. Well, it did get mailed and I received it several weeks ago – almost 2 months ago actually (blush). Looks like life happened to me too.
The pendants are absolutely beautiful. I was overwhelmed when I saw them. I wasn’t expecting something so spectacular, until I took the time to check out her website.
Without further delay, I wanted to share the beautiful pendants that she sent, along with a few other little treasures:

I feel very blessed.
