Finding inspiration

I am a beader who doesn't make beads, which means that I often look to others for inspiration and beautiful images. These Frida Kahlo components were fantastic, and I had such a wonderful time matching crystal colors to them. The artist who makes the components is terrific--she even creates images on the back by hand. I always adore artists who are aware of the special needs of jewelry designers. When I find components that are mirror-imaged I always jump for joy.

And how wonderful is it that she works just as hard on the back (that might not even be seen) as the front? Attention to detail always impresses me.
