Art Bead Scene: March Challenge

Here is the beautiful painting for the March Inspiration. To read about it click Art Bead Scene Blog: March Monthly Challenge.

I was immediately taken back to my Grandmothers home when I was a child. I can see the pussywillows on the dining room table with her tea cup sitting out. She insisted to always drink out of a China tea cup and never a mug. So I knew I wanted to do something with pearls, to represent my grandmother. But what Art bead?... These were in my suggestions in etsy that first week. I HAD to have them.
These are from

Indian Creek's shop on Etsy https://www.etsy.com/shop/outwest
When my beads came, there was a gift from the artist! Two lampwork beads that look just like the catkins of the pussywillow. They are the perfect shade of blue/grey and have a fuzzy texture to them! Without further ado...



Here is the link for my finished February ABS project! My hand made beads finally came from Italy...

  1. This necklace is so beautiful. It's perfect for the inspiration, and I also love how it relates to a memory of your grandmother. I miss drinking out of china, but I need more beverage than that!

  3. I love that the inspiration behind the necklace had a person connection too, that makes it so much more special. This one caught my eye on Pinterest this week too. I love how you used the leather cord in your design, it's so fresh and adds a great design element to your piece.

  8. Goodness, I've always loved Outwest beads, but I never would have thought to use them as you have done here, with pearls and this beautiful design! Beautifully creative!

  9. I adore your necklace! While I too would be drawn to the glass beads you bought, I would probably shied away from them because of the large holes. I love how you pulled all the elements together with the winding leather cord (something else that always freaks me out!) What a gorgeous and special piece!
