November Art Bead Scene Entry - Stillman's Madonna


About this design:

This necklace is my entry in the November challenge sponsored by ArtBeadScene.blogspot.com. The theme of this month's challenge is the painting "Madonna Pietra degli Scrovigni" by Marie Spartali Stillman (1844-1927)

The pendant is an image transfer onto polymer clay, which I framed in brass and showcased with peridot glass bell beads and Siam Swarovksi crystal, Vintaj Brass flower bead caps and other antique brass finish components.

Components:

polymer clay, czech glass, swarovski crystal, vintaj natural brass, brass

    What a beautiful creation, Lynda!
    Very elegant and yet, there is a light and airy feel to it. Almost has a Gypsy flair to it!
