December still life

I was intrigued by the fruit bowl and the bluish gray marks or shadows on the right side….so I chose a lampwork bead by my husband Moon, that I felt gave this impression. . The creamy white trade beads also reflect the fruit bowl and I feel keep the necklace from being too serious. The filigree components are a nod to the tapestry and the green and white Czech glass beads mirror the colors of the tulips.
