As an island in the subtropics, Saint Helena has some amazing vegetation not the least of which are these towering eucalyptus trees that stand in groves on steep mountainsides.

I modified what I do for my grass/flax design and used it as stripes that mimic the peeling bark of the eucalyptus tree. Researching the trees a bit more I learned about the painted or rainbow eucalyptus. I'll be exploring this design for a while in both greys and color. I chose brass findings in warmer choices to sterling silver.

    I've been informed that this is a blog award of sorts and it means that you have to come over to my blog, copy the questions and read the rules at the end of the list (of questions), and then answer them on your blog whenever you're good and ready. :)
