What a winter it has been. Large snowfalls, most of which is still on the ground. I imagine we'll be close to a record for the season. Our driveway curves and goes up hill, and has beaten more than one poor driver! But snow is supposed to be a good insulator for the perennial garden, so it can stay until the really cold weather is done.
This piece looks a little dark, and it is very monochromatic. I wanted a variety of snowflaks, just like you see on a snowy day. The lampworked bead on the right side middle is just a disk with white and clear dots built up. I made another one that I used for a friend's birthday present. I'll have to borrow it and take a picture. It was simple and lovely.
