Boho Spring Rain

About this design:

Throwing my hat into the ring. This is my entry in the Spring Rain Challenge. I think I was heavily influenced by the book I was reading when the kit came. It involved a group of artists in France and England at the turn of the 20th century. There was a lot of discussion of the New Art, or Art Nouveau. I used pearlized paint and alcohol ink on the ribbon slide and the clasp. Coral jewelry was mentioned a couple of times so I thought I would add a little. I also added gunmetal spacers and a little rutilated quartz.
