Beads from Cameroun

This is a necklace I love. It was made in Cameroun, my sister in law brought it from there some years ago, when she went to see her family.

I painted each part of it as if it was seperate. It is fun to look at such little elements, trying to figure out the shapes and shadows.

You are so good at rendering the small details of delicate things. A lovely necklace full of numinous meaning.

Oh Andrea! This is a lovely necklace and a grand idea to paint it! I love the way you have organized the page and brought all of the elements together. I want to reach right out and touch it!

Keep doing this, Andrea!
