A big "thank you" goes out to Art Bead Scene and to Lorelei Eurto for featuring me as their Designer of the Week for my November entry into their monthly challenge. What a fun way to start off my crazy week!
Here's what Lorelei had to say about this piece:
"As soon as I saw Molly's necklace, I knew it was my favorite interpretation of Klimt's painting, Tree of Life.
The beautiful etched pendant, with it's curly tendrils of branches mimics the tree in the painting, and of course, I love anything with wood beads. I love the asymmetrical nature of this piece. I think the interesting metal bail that Molly made for her pendant is my favorite part about the piece. A little unexpected tidbit that one might not notice right away!"
Thank you so much!
(Incidentally, the bail is made from copper hanger tape from my local hardware store that I shaped to fit my piece. Then hand-colored it to match the etched pendant, added etched copper washers, and riveted it all together to finish off the focal.)
