Van Gogh's Irises
The Art Bead Scene's new challenge is Van Gogh's famous iris painting, so this is my take on it. It's my hope to create some Iris inspired beads before the end of the month, but we'll see if that hope becomes reality.
For this necklace I started with 5 of my disk beads in purple. I paired them up with glass purple and jonquil, crystals in olive green, a green coin pearl, brass chain, a Vintaj leaf and clasp along with a hearty helping of filigree bead caps. The two glass rings were a gift from Rosanne. I wish I could remember the artist's name.Here is a little photo collage of some of my beads that would work for the theme.
