The River

This piece is designed after the river in the inspiration piece. Clasp is by Humble beads which I picked up at the Milwaukee Bead & Button show.  Thanks for the coupon Heather.  Silver jumprings, crimp beads, and crimp covers. Rectangle beads are blue goldstone.  Green flower: Frosted green ten-petal flower spacer bead with Peridot Swarovski® crystal.

INSPIRATION: The Conference of the Birds by Habiballah, page from a manuscript of the Mantiq al-Tayr (The Language of the Birds) of Farid al-Din `Attar ca. 1600; Safavid Iran (Isfahan)
