Art Bead Scene Challenge

I created two pieces for this month's challenge on the Art Bead Scene.  I loved the warm yellow tones and lush flowers.  I had the perfect focal - a new Queen Anne's Lace pendant from Vintaj.  Isn't that just the loveliest!

I paired it with a textured arte metal blank to give it a little punch.  For color, I grabbed my trusty Branch Disk beads in golden yellow and Yellow Wobble spacers.  (They were a special edition, but I have them in a more mellow golden color on the website.)
I added in some Vintaj leaves in copper, brass and arte metal to mimic the fullness of the inspiration painting.

Not stopping at just one inspiration, I pulled together a tulip inspired piece too with my Leaf Pendant and a lavender wobble.  Love those little wobble spacers, they go great just about anywhere!
I will have this pendant as a free project on my website tomorrow and if you subscribe to my newsletter, it's already in your inbox!

Join in the fun and create something for this month's challenge too!

Now THAT is colourful! I love all the tones and highlights in the picture. I love that the artist put the bouquet in a window alcove. All the possibilities for inspiration in this image!!

I forgot to mention that I love your necklace and I think the way it came together with the Queen Anne's lace is just wonderful!

I love the necklace. It reflects that painting really well.
