Pure, simple perfection.....

Eva Ehmeier(Hoedlgut) from Austria made a bracelet that took my breath away.

It's pure and simple perfection. Color, texture, composition, contrast......everytime I look at the piece I see somthing new, another little suprise hidden in the folds of the clay and the imagination of the artist.
