A set of sunsets?

2014 Festival of Glass exhibitor Janet Jenkin was an award winner at the Bead Society of Victoria's annual exhibition in November.

The award was for the best set of 5 non-identical handmade beads around the theme, 'Sunset'. Janet took a novel twist in the theme and her set of five beads each features the silhouette of a particular tree at sunset. 'I made the lampwork bead bases then embellished the surfaces using a technique that I’ll teach in my Doddlebeads workshop at the Festival of Glass', said Janet.

The set is featured below; they are (L to R): Tropical Palm, Saguaro Cactus, Australian Grass Tree, African Umbrella Thorn Tree and Australian Bottle Tree.
