Art Bead Scene December Challenge!

I know I'm trying to squeak by at the last second. I hope I'm not too late. It's been a very busy holiday season, and then I was too sick to be creative most of the week. So at the eleventh thirteenth hour, here's my entry for the December Challenge!

First, the painting that I chose to use for inspiration:

I made the robin out of paper clay, painted it with acrylics, and finished with Diamond Glaze. I made the clasp as well. The rest of the necklace includes recycled sari silk ribbon, a fine silver leaf charm, copper leaf charms, freshwater pearls, crystals, agate, a carved bone bead, and various antique brass findings. I wish I'd gotten this done sooner, but I had a lot of fun and I'm pleased with the result!


  1. That birdie is so cute! I love that he looks as if he has escaped the clutches of those fairies and is ready to fly!
    Enjoy the day!

  2. Thanks! I hadn't thought of it like that, but you're right :)

  3. Niiiiice necklace!
    Great color- and material-combo.
    Happy New Year!
