She took this little bead and turned it in to a beautiful focal piece on a work of love and art.
The bead color is achieved by putting a thin layer of Baja blue Pinata ink over Pearl White Cernit. Then it is stamped with a rubber stamp and Gold Pearl-ex ink. I add the cap embellishments in Champagne Cernit, Bake and antique with Ne-Opaque brown.
Howard carries all of those products: http://www.clayfactory.net/
It frames the bead nicely and is fashioned after medicine and amulet pouches, which I absolutely adore.
Ancient peoples used to put their little treasures and magic pieces in them and carry them around their necks and close to their hearts. We could all use a little good JU-JU, eh?
She also made this beautiful hanging crystal for Madi when she was born!!
Bobbi is carrying on a tradition in her family and honoring her mother in her beadworks.
Do yourself a favor and go visit her and her gallery of work on Bead-space.
