I’m hoping to participate a bit more frequently with the Art Bead Scene monthly challenge this year, aided by the fact that they have published a little booklet with all twelve artworks for the year, so I can get a head start! Well, that’s the theory anyway!
This month’s painting — by Egon Schiele — is a riot of flowers in yellows, oranges and reds.
I recently bought a couple of earring pairs from Melissa Gabelle. She decorates these little ceramic charms with slip to create a textured floral design. One of the pairs was a yellow and red design which was perfect for this challenge. I came up with a new way to hang the charms from the wires using deerhide leather, which I’m quite pleased with.
In fact, I used the same technique to make a similar pair using smaller charms in purple.
Thank you Art Bead Scene for an interesting and inspirational choice of art this month.
