August Monthly Challenge Update – Art Bead Scene

on October 18, 2012
This was the first Challenge I entered and I really enjoyed it.  It made me experiment more with colours and design and gave me a chance to use some of my bead stash, always a good thing.
 
Fishing Boats, Key West, 1903 by Winslow Homer
Few of Homer’s watercolors rival this one for its effects of shimmering sunlight and steamy atmosphere.
 
I made two pieces, a necklace and bracelet.  The plan was to just make the necklace but I found that I couldn’t use all my ideas in one piece and so I made the bracelet to incorporate these.  The unplanned bracelet is the item of jewllery I’m wearing the most at the moment.
