'Koi Pond, II' for Ellen (custom order)

(Outdated text borrowed from 'Koi Pond, I') I am thrilled to announce my designing lull finally seems to have broken (I've been a beading-fool for the past year when the lull melted) and I am up most nights until 2am, starting a design in the mysterious quiet of the night.  I suppose it was the heat of summer and the dour worldwide news which had me lulled into beading lethargy. Now, it seems I am going for gold and dipping into my top premier lampwork beads (most expensive) to make my visions come true.  This one is called 'Koi Pond & Lotus Garden.'  It incorporates the lampwork beads of several artists, the two most prominent being Catherine Steele of Art with Heart and a German glass artist named Gabrielle Savage.  
 
Perhaps some of Catherine's most sought after bead designs are her Koi Pond lentils as shown in my piece.  Catherine, like me, has been on a hiatus and has made few beads in the last few months (no longer in a lull; torching like crazy these days!).  I am so pleased that I stock a library of inspirational lampwork beads so that I have them always at the ready, at my fingertips.  I used the last three Koi lentils in my library and can only hope her hiatus ends soon, too.  As you can see, Catherine's Koi lentils are sculptural wonders with a Koi fish swimming in her pond beside a lily pad and floating florals.  So magical.  I combined them with  Gabrielle Savage's equally inspiring transparent green pond and garden-esq beads which are complex in design and include bumps and swirls and lines suggesting a beautiful garden sanctuary.  Her work is nothing short of cosmic and contains that avant gard flare of so many European artists.  Austria's famed painter, Hundertwasser, comes to mind when I look at Gabrielle's work.
 
Other lampwork beads include sublime floral tulips in yellow and french red; green & white petaled 3D flowers by Serena of SJSD Designs and polka dot lampwork discs by Heather of BeadIntrigue..  Published clay artist, D. Jean Vainio makes some of my favorite Shasta Daisy clay flowers.  In this midst of beauty, you will also find shimmering aquamarine faceted rondelles, luminous white iolite, freshwater pearls capped in petaled beadcaps, Swarovski rondelles & bicones & faceted cubes in two sizes; bali silver daisy spacers & twisted ring spacers, white sterling lotus flower beads by the Hilltribe artisans and a Buddha charm centerpiece. 'Koi Pond' is finished with a custom, lampwork toggle clasp made to order for this design.
 
This is one of those showpieces. It makes a statement about life, 'The way is not in the sky. The way is in the heart.' (Buddha)
