Crow Wisdom - AJE Component of the Month

For our Art Jewelry Elements Component of the Month blog hop, Rebekah Payne of Tree Wings Studio created these fabulous Speckle Beads for us to feature in a design. I received one in gorgeous earth tones and loved it so much I was inspired to make compatible beads in ceramic to go with it.

Rebekah's bead alongside mine.

I pretty much knew the color scheme and style I wanted to use: earthy, nature-inspired, and a touch of mystery. Crow represents mystery and wisdom to me so he appears in this piece alongside Rebekah's Speckle Bead. I used a bit of batik fabric for a rustic boho look. I really like how it turned out. I am calling this "Crow Wisdom", after the bead set I made based on the same theme.
