June ABS – Rolling hills

This watery scene is a watercolour called Jackknife Village by Franklin Carmichael painted in 1926.   The colours of the landscape, particularly the mountains, reminded me of a set of lampwork beads I have had for sometime, created by Moogin Beads.  The soft water colours seemed to evoke the same dreamy impression as the picture for me.  I originally planned to make a clay house as part of my entry but then started experimenting with some bugle beads which gave me the angles of the roofs and therefore I used this method to join the large lampwork beads together.  A much simpler design than planned but I think more effective.

The bugle beads stand proud of the wrist and  create a shadow,  adding some interest when wearing.  It also made good use of some large beads that I had been struggling to find a design for.   I used a silver house shaped clasp by Daisychain Designs which seemed to complete the bracelet perfectly whilst remaining within the theme of the picture.  A last minute design that I’m very pleased with.
