California Dream Beaded Panel in Red and Neutrals
Created by Julie Long Gallegos
Tiny Japanese seed beads are loomed into panels 1"x 2.5" and linked by 5mm lava and oxidized sterling silver rounds, in an abstract motif of California Poppies. A startling and lovely reinterpretation of the California State flower, in reds, matte black, ivory, and gray. The focal element is 2.25" x 2.5" and is suspended by .5" chain lengths. The neck surround of oxidized sterling silver chain and hand-fabricated hook closure is 18". All findings are sterling silver.
