Feathers and Wings

I received a review copy of Cynthia Thornton's Enchanted Adornment about a month or so ago. It's my all time favorite bead book now. Not only are the projects beyond inspiring, it's filled with tips and beadmaking savvy, she has an awesome little narrative that runs through the book and tells the story of a jewelry maker who finds herself creating jewelry for mythical creatures.

Her story is completely enchanting! I love it and wish Cynthia would write a novel based on those characters. (I know I don't need to say go buy the book because you already plan to or you are waiting anxiously for your pre-ordered copy to arrive!)

I am so inspired by the book that I created a series of wing beads that represent angels, the phoenix, woodland sprite and the butterfly. And speaking of wings, check out the Art Bead Scene's new challenge. We are celebrating fairies and Cynthia's book all month on the ABS!

You can find the wings in my etsy shop, they are a very limited edition.
