For the ABS January monthly challenge I have made a pair of earrings. How could I resist those peacock colours? (Actually the earrings made themselves, I was just there at the time.)

Black Peacocks with Japanese Persimmons

“Black Peacocks with Japanese Persimmons” (1940) by Jessie Arms Botke

I like that they are an abstract interpretation of the peacocks – incorporating the colours, the pattern of the eyes, and the flow of the tail feathers. The focal beads are polymer clay, handmade by me, accented by long bugle beads and a mix of glass seed beads. The ear-wires are bronze coloured niobium.
