I'm on the road again, visiting with family and staying with a sister who has a bead mania. This bead (and it's immediate family) jumped into my hands, demanding attention. It is a hand-made centerpiece bead, with transparencies, beautiful colors, iridescence, linear elements, and bubbles. In short, just about everything that fascinates me. So far, I've only taken 163 pictures, but there are still several more directions to explore. I don't know the ... sculptor? who made it, but thank you.
Besides the bead, this photo involves two different containers, water and sunshine. No special effects.
