|Alphonse Mucha, Oil on Panel|
Autumn from "The Seasons (series)", 1896
I added in an assortment of beads that pulled from different parts of the color palette including carnelian, Czech glass, and even a Swarovski crystal. I also mixed in a couple of lovely little lampwork spacers from Beadygirl Beads along with a couple of small copper beads.
I got lots of practice doing wrapped loops on this necklace and I'm certainly feeling way more confident in my wire wrapping skills than I did even six months ago. I thought the darker color of the Vintaj natural brass chain lent itself well to the darker browns in the artwork.
I hope my necklace captures the feeling and colors of Mucha's painting and the season that we are heading into. I hope you all have some fun and exciting plans to celebrate the coming of fall!
