January 2018 Art Bead Scene Studio Monthly Challenge


Title: Spring
By: Frances MacDonald
Date: c. 1900-1905
Medium: Watercolor on Linen

Each month the Art Bead Scene Studio challenges their readers to create jewelry inspired by that months featured artwork.  The only rule is that the jewelry must include at least one art bead in their piece.

The first spring flowers that I notice in my back yard are beautiful wild violets, which is the first thing I thought of when I saw this months inspiration piece.

Wild Violets
Wild Violets earrings are made with enameled charms by Raida Disbrow https://www.etsy.com/people/HavanaBeads dangling from copper wire wrapped components, which include lampwork beads by Ellen Dooley https://www.etsy.com/people/edooley, grey faceted glass beads, copper daisy spacers and brown shell beads and are finished with handmade copper ear wires.

Thank you for visiting!

  1. Those enameled charms look like they were made with this specific challenge in mind, they are so beautiful and in the spirit of the work of art! And I also love the stacked beads on top!
