Last month I didn’t manage to make an ABS monthly challenge piece because I was working on my Bead Soup*, so I’m pleased to present one this month. The inspiration painting is from 1741, the Rococo era.
For my colours I used the periwinkle blue of the sky and, in place of the yellow ochre of the brickwork, gold (because when I think Rococo too much gold is not enough). Then I thought of the Rococo interiors and I made a pattern like fossil rich marble.
I made a polymer clay focal that also functions as a toggle.
It comes together as a necklace.
But since I seem to get lucky when I make bracelets for the ABS challenges it can also be worn as a multi-wrap bracelet (cunning eh?).
I can’t wait to see what they have next month as inspiration.
* I’m giving away a set of beads as part of my Bead Soup Blog Party reveal, entries available until the end of May.
