Perfect Pairings :: Loralee Kolton + Wandering Spirit + Firefly Design Studio

It was an easy choice for me this week since our very own Miss Loralee had the only entry (there’s still time for you to play along for next week!). Miss Loralee is a master at breaking down an inspiration into its constituent parts and putting it back together again in such a meaningful way. I think it helps to have the robust inventory of beads and components that she does, including an enviable hoard of art beads, but still she manages to bring together all the parts to handily. From our magical illustration she pulled out the black bird from our very own Michelle McCarthy of Firefly Design Studio, the lantern created from a stunning hollow glass bead from Aja Vaz of Wandering Spirit (I have a small collection of her beads and they are remarkable!) and the scatter of stars with the unique shaped crystals creating a necklace that truly casts a spell.

    Wow, Erin, thank you…lol I’m just seeing this; I had no idea…lol Thank you for the lovely words. I instantly adored this painting when I saw it and had to make a piece! The painting has so much grace. I focused on capturing the light and movement that I felt when looking at it. Thank you again. ~L xo
