ABS Editors Take February Monthly Challenge

I was testing glaze colors on these pendants from my Celtic Collection. They are from Duncan's Courtyard Collection of glazes. You get interesting lights and darks depending on how thick the glaze is applied. My favorite is the top pendant that has more of the orange rusty colors. 
The painting has a range of reds, salmon, orange, pink and a bit of brown (in the butterfly), along with the pale yellow background. 
The pendants will go in the Bead Monthly Challenge on Pinterest.
