I didn't use all of the beads, but I really love the rustic look of those brown ceramic beads. The focal I chose is a ceramic piece made by Pat Antonick of Heliotrope Bead Studio in Dayton, Ohio. I love visiting her shop. It's small, but her workroom is enormous. She is an artist, beader, and quilter. I am lucky her shop is close by. The twisted looking ceramic beads were made by Pat as well.
Also thank you Heather Powers and Lorelei Eurto for hosting the challenge and providing the inspiration!
