June Challenge Theme-Phenomenon

Congrats again to Isabella, bead4me, for winning last month's challenge. The theme she has chosen for the June Challenge is "Phenomenon", she writes:

As I Have said before, I have found that the nature is the perfect creation, it always gives me inspiration to create some thing of my own by using the colors or the appearance. The ability to use it and let it effect our handmade creation is amazing by itself.
In the last few weeks, we were all witnesses to another affect of one such Iceland volcano.
Try to remember one Phenomenon that amazed you the most and transfer it to amazing beaded jewelry.

You may start your entry today and must complete and list it by midnight Etsy time, June 5, 2010!

Any style, any technique with a majority of bead weaving is welcome. Pieces submitted for the challenges should be newly-created (by you - not from a pattern) between the date the challenge theme is announced and the 5th of the month when it is due.
