Delicate saucer magnolias grow from brown branches with leaves in four shades of translucent green. Each petal has four colors of beads from a rich dusty pink to a shimmering ivory. The beads are shiny glass with the color lined on the inside. This gives a multi-dimensional effect which sparkles in the light from any angle.
The entire arrangement is permanently fixed in multicolored river pebbles set in a vintage midcentury planter. Height is ~10" including planter and about 15" (for scale the planter is 11" long).
