14-15.10.08 Linum Grandiflorum Ring

After a while that I haven't found the muse to bead, I asked Omer to choose for me a beautiful flower so that I can try to bead it. He looked in his flower's catalog and found two flowers. One of them was Linum grandiflorum. I immediately searched for better pictures on the net and felt through google on the flickr album of Philip Bouchard with this amazing macro picture:

you can click on the picture to see more of his wonderful photographs or click this link.

Thank you Philip for kindly allowing me to put your picture on my blog.
I got the muse and the inspiration to come up with a flower similar to the Scarlet flax flower (פשתה גדולה):

to which I beaded also a leaf:

But since the leaf didn't suit for a ring, I just altered to make what you see below:
Thank you Omer and Philip for your inspiration and giving me a good reason to touch the beads again :-)
