November Art Bead Scene Entry - Stillman's Madonna

About this design:

This necklace is my entry in the November challenge sponsored by 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.

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