I have made two pairs of earrings for the Art Bead Scene monthly challenge. I made the polymer clay art beads for them too. Here’s the inspiration painting:

Oil on canvas, 1957

Here are the earrings:

The first pair of earrings is smaller and the beads are more regular. I paired them with green crystal cubes and seed beads on niobium pins.

The second pair of beads I made were more organic and irregular. They reminded me of seed pods. I made them into longer earrings with a leaf charm at the bottom.
