Some pictures of Glen Onoko Falls in the Pocono Mountains near Jim Thorpe, Pa.
The blue bead I found while hiking the trail that gave me the idea to bead the waterfall. I added it to the necklace, under a fern.

I used labradorite and aquamarine beads along with two hole beads and seed beads to create the waterfall.
The sun came out for this picture
The entire piece is free form bead work incorporating brick, peyote, square, herringbone, spiral stitch and fringe. I worked on it over five months and am very happy it was chosen as a finalist.
