Poppy Field

The poppy has been an import symbol to many cultures throughout history. Fertility to the ancient Greeks, eternal life to the Egyptians, and since WWI, they have been worn to honor veterans. The focal piece of this necklace is a small panting of poppies done on canvas. This technique makes this beadwork necklace unusually lightweight. Painted canvas, crystals, seed beads, glass teardrops. Necklace approx. 17”, pendent approx. 1 ½ x 2 ¼”. $50
