My interpretation of the April Monthly Art Bead Scene Challenge.
The real challenge these days is trying to find some time to create. The shortage of time does seems to help me focus and hone down the design process. Nothing too elaborate here with this necklace, but I think it captures the theme of the painting.
Boreas by John William Waterhouse, 1903
Called Boreas after the north wind in Greek mythology, the work shows a young girl in a windswept landscape. In 1904 the Royal Academy notes described the subject as: “In wind-blown draperies of slate-colour and blue, a girl passes through a spring landscape accented by pink blossom and daffodils”.
Materials used, jump rings, C-Lon cord, silk sari ribbon, lampwork glass beads, recycled metal tin, head pins, mesh chain, seed beads and toggle clasp.
