|Nave Nave Moe (Sacred Spring, Sweet Dreams) by Paul Gaugin 1894|
For this month's Art Bead Scene Challenge piece mom and I based our piece on the color and one of the women sitting by the spring. Mom came up with the design for the pendant, sawed it out and then I enameled the pendant based on the colors in the painting. Below is "Island Paradise":
For accent beads I used white and clear glass and rolled the glass in red/orange frit. We then accented the lampwork beads with red Czech beads. To finish off the necklace we used "Fancy Fur" yarn from a stash of yarn that Juls sent us.
