Sleeping Beauty by Erté, 1983
I supplemented this with some of my very favorite pottery beads I've been saving made by Natalie Pappas. The red for "Sleeping Beauty's" dress, and the blue flowers to represent the snowflake flowers hanging from the limbs above her in the painting.
|There are also small beads of blue, black and white scattered among these, and twisted black wire to represent additional hanging twigs with snow. All hang from two sizes of darkened chain.|
Thank you, ABS, for such an inspiring December choice!

A note about Natalie:
She is in the process of consolidating stores, so you can currently find her in two locations!
NKP Designs is where all her pottery and beads will soon be located! Notice the lovely cups added in addition to beads!
NKP Beads is where she has had her bead shop. Everything in THIS store is at 50% off until the beads are gone or are moved to the new store. There are still beautiful beads there, so be sure to visit there as well! Make sure you use the Coupon Code: BEADSALE50!
My thanks to Natalie for the beautiful beads used in this necklace!
