Sculptural florals and bellflowers

After going to the Bead and Button show in Milwaukee in early June, I was inspired by Nolly Gelsinger to expand on my sculptural flower forms. That inspiration along with the purchase of a couple of Carlo Dona (Murano glass tool maker maestro) bell flower presses gave rises to the following neckpiece statement - along with sweet little bell flower earrings. I also discovered the joys of Carnelian opalino glass. Can't imagine why I neglected the opalilno glasses for so long; they are just perfect for flower petals! Enjoy my glass garden :-)
