The work of art that the Art Bead Scene folks picked out this month for inspiration in their challenge is a work called "Persia" by George Barbier. I focused on the orange of the lovely robe for my art beads this month and came up with this set...
There are a few different artists represented in these pieces:
A set of Brendan Blake lampwork beads called "Orange Violet Pebbles,"
some lampwork discs from HMB Studios, and
enameled beads and bead caps from SueBeads.
For some reason, I just can't get enough of this antiqued brass looking metal. So, I splurged on some Vintaj leafy branches to round out this look--love them on the earrings. Plus, I'm not a big user of beadcaps, but I love the effect of these little brass floral ends.
I used spiny oyster, vintage brass, and random orange stone rondelles and rounds to finish the long necklace. Then more of the same on memory wire (my personal addiction), with some tourmaline nuggets--it took a while to separate out the purples from the rest, but it was worth it.
