The inspiration for this month's Art Bead Scene Challenge is this painting, Italian's House at Montmartre by Maurice Utrillo. The idea is to create a piece of jewelry -- using at least one art bead -- based on the monthly painting. This is only the second time I've participated, but now that my collection of art beads is growing, I might be participating more often.
The green ceramic house bead is by Elukka. I've also included copper leaf chain, coppery coral tube beads, faceted jade, and some vintage crackly off white flower beads and vintage green cotton-pearl beads that obviously weren't given the pearl finish, but are interesting nonetheless. It's strung on salmon colored Irish waxed linen cording, and is finished with a bit of antique copper chain & clasp.
