Art Bead Scene March Challenge Blog Tour

The inspiration for this months challenge is Nave Nave Moe (Sacred Spring, Sweet Dreams) by Paul Gaugin 1894.

Below is a picture of my entry piece to the March ART BEAD SCENE monthly challenge.  I created the pendant by attaching a lovely Gaea ceramic focal to the center of a brass filigree and then added some beautiful etched lampwork beads made by pinocean.  The necklace includes two more Gaea beads and additional pinocean lampwork beads dangling from Vintaj brass chain.       
Here is a close up of the pendant.

March Art Bead Scene



This is a picture of my entry piece to the March ART BEAD SCENE monthly challenge.  I created the pendant by attaching a lovely Gaea ceramic focal to the center of a brass filigree and then added some beautiful etched lampwork beads made by pinocean.  The necklace includes two more Gaea beads and additional pinocean lampwork beads dangling from Vintaj brass chain.  

 The inspiration for this months challenge is Nave Nave Moe (Sacred Spring, Sweet Dreams) by Paul Gaugin 1894.  I love the range of colors in this painting and the feelings it invoked in me.  It was very easy for me to be inspired to create my necklace.

 Here is a close up of the pendant.

Thanks for stopping by!
