Pool of Tranquility

Did this one over the weekend - just because I wanted to use this Jade cabochon - and then I saw yesterday what the theme was for the YOJ Challenge on the Beading Forum and thought I would enter it for this week. The theme ... Tidal Pools.



Tidal Pools to me are dark and mysterious - full of lots of nooks and crannies, and little surprises here and there - with just a hint of blue. This piece looks far more dark and mysterious IRL by the way - looks way too green in the photo.

Thanks Carol - but I actually don't enter these things with the intention or wanting to win ... I do it mainly for the challenge itself. To win is just the cherry on the top. :-)
