Just saw the Degas that is the inspiration for this month's ArtBead Scene Challenge. Just love his work and I have just the piece that fits in the colors I see. The focal round stone is a Chrysocolla and its healing powers are all about expression, empowerment and teaching. Something I can use more of any day of the week. The dragon is a protector and the gold quilted beads are my own polymer beads. I love the feel of this piece when I wear it. Could it be I'm feeling the healing properties of the chrysocolla?
