GENERAL INFORMATION:
Title: Christmas Salad
Year Created: 2005
Dimension: a set of 17 beads, 26X16mm -
Allow digital alterations?: Yes!

MY COMMENTS:
Here's a new shape I'm calling Bowties...do you like it? I know they aren't precise...none of my work is unless it's accidental. I actually try to NOT have my petals too similar on flowers, leaves and such, for a more natural look. But sometimes my repetitive motions tend to produce accuracy...guess I should listen to jazz at the torch, eh? Love, Helen

MY QUESTIONS FOR THE GROUP:
Do you think this might be original? Have you seen this wierd shape before? Is it too symetrical to be interesting? Too many things going on or not enough?

I like the beads and the colors-they're fun. I don't use a lot of color but appreciate it in others work. I like the flowers and the bowties but I don't know if I'd put both together. If you do want to put them together then I think there may be too much color with the complexity of the shapes. I'm conservative to a fault am curious as to what others will have to say.

You're colors choices I think could go beyond christmas to year round.

"Christmas Salad" just doesn't seem to fit this set. It's got more spunk, pow and charisma!!! Now, Charisma seems to fit it better.

So true, I'm soooo bead naming deficient, and in such a hurry to get them listed so I can make more...wonder if we'll ever tire of this? I'm so hungry for salad, it's all i could think of...avacado & shrimp. Love, Helen
