Seeing Red In The Garden Necklace

6 ABS July 2011 by The Beading Yogini

Surprise, it’s not a micro macrame jewelry piece. This necklace was created for the Art Bead Scene July Challenge. Each month a work of art is featured and used as inspiration for the design process. This month, the art is Morning in the Garden at Vaucresson by Edouard Vuillard.  Lovely color pallet to play with and I decided the emphasis for this piece would be the reds and pinks. I made a clay button for the focal piece of the necklace, added some of my orphan lampwork  glass beads and raku clay bead from XAZ. Then, some beautiful sari ribbon from  Design Talented One, in the best shade of red I’ve ever laid my hands on. Time permitting, I think I’ll try my hand at another jewelry piece using the greens and lavender tones too. More photos in the gallery below.

    I love your ecclectic use of fabric, ceramic, metal and glass- delicious! I’ve just started making my own glass beads and your work has given me loads of inspiration thank you! Bex x

    Wow! really nice piece. It captures the chaos of a late summer garden. Love your reds, especially the focal flower bead you made! – Somehow my print of the inspiration photo didn’t catch that red the same way- very interesting!! Hmmm. Better re-calibrate my printer.

      Thank you. I know all about out of hand gardens! I also saw lots of greys and purples in the photo and intended to do another piece using those colors. Somehow time just gets away from me. We should meet up sometime for a bead/clay/textile gab fest.
