October Bead Journal piece

I'm really enjoying this Bead Journal Project, even more than I imagined. It is an opportunity to do something with no specific goal or obligation, expressing something that is usually beyond words. This piece has a spiral lampwork disc in brown as the focal, with circles and vines flowing from it. I like the pumpkin color and the various shades of brown, beige and orange. I have no formal training in design, but lots of art history classes many, many years ago! So I think about balance, contrast, texture, movement--but visually, not with words. What a wonderful way to explore!
