Janvier / January

Première inspiration de l'année chez Art Bead Scene.
First inspiration for the Art Bead Scene monthly challenge.

Textile Design for Cretonne, 1928? 
by Lois Mailou Jones
Tempera on Paper
Des couleurs magnifiques et curieusement, j'ai eu du mal à trouver quoi faire.
En faisant le tour de mes perles d'art je suis tombée sur ce pendentif de  Round Rabbit.
Je voulais reproduire la végétation luxuriante  et j'ai pensé qu'elle serait difficile à rendre dans un collier.
Et si je transformais ce pendentif en cabochon pour en faire une broche…
J'ai pris le risque, et voilà:

Gorgeous colors but strangely, I had a hard time finding what to do.
When I looked through my art beads, I found this pendant by  Round Rabbit.
I wanted to reproduce the lush vegetation and I thought it would  be difficult with a necklace.
So, what if I turned the pendant into a cabochon to make a brooch…
I risked it and here it is:

7 commentaires:

  1. Nice use of the colors in the inspiration textile design in your brooch--very pretty!

  2. How appropriate... almost as if Nancy's bead had been made just for this purpose, Karin! It is fun to see a brooch, which we don't get very often at the challenge, and this one is very attractive :)

  3. I love reading your blog Karin, although my phone usually doesn't allow me to comment! I always try and read the French first to brush up on my very basic skills - I really enjoy that aspect especially :-) As always, this is a beautiful piece! You make real magic with art beads!

  4. Magic Karin, as I have already said! Thank you for playing along with our challenge :-)

  5. What a gorgeous piece. Love your brooch

  6. This brooch turned out so fantastic! I am a huge fan of Round Rabbit beads and I love it with the stitched bezel! Well done!!

  7. C'est captivant! Stunning use of color and design. Bravoooo! ça me plaît énormément.
