Diva challenge 91

Broken Beads seems like a good name for this.  I wanted to try white on black and was disappointed  in a pen I had gotten, but today I tried my white pencil just to see, and LO --it showed up pretty well.  So here are my beads in white on the black background.  I don't think this is a favorite, but it fit the challenge. 

Must have had it in the scanner at a tilt.  I didn't mean for this to be, but it does make the pile look more 'broken'. 
Here's hoping these broken beads can be reused for Beads of Courage and mean something special.

Very cool idea! I like the way you have drawn in the openings at the ends of the beads.

Great idea! love the effect of white on black - it gives the beads quite a bit of definition.

The white on black is very dramatic. Great take on this challenge.
