Delicate filligree components

To all the people who knows my design style or who follows my design endeavors this might look very strange at first glance but I keep versatility as a necessary skill to  visit different areas and possibilities.
The latest issue of Bead Style magazine ot only features one of my designs on its cover but also showcase a very different side of work on their "Designs We Love" gallery page.

Take a glance of the picture below and check that out.
Side by side on the same page, designers Madelin Pratama from Jakarta, Indonesia and Lori Anderson from Easton, Md are equally featured with not less fabulous creations as well. I liked the way the three designs are presented together and the discovered theme that ties all of us together - mother nature, flora and fauna.

Fauna and flora interpreted on 3 different designs featured on Bead Style magazine May 2012.
Delicate and demure are not a common theme on my designs but it comes up once a

"Nymph of forest" necklace - designed by me for and with all components provided by John Bead
jump rings used to link all filigree components together. Gilder's paste used to unified
the metal color, indicolite Swarovski round crystal beads held in place by royal blue silk thread,
little antique connectors filled with 2 part epoxy ( two portions of green and yellow mixed apart and them mixed together to create a lime green shade) and half of toggle working as center link  - a second toggle of similar design was used twice to finish the necklace.
