December Art Bead Scene Challenge

This month, Art Bead Scene gave us two paintings to use as inspiration for our challenge piece, both by John Anster Fitzgerald:
 
Storm-Fitzgerald-L 
"The Storm"

The_captive_robin 
"The Captive Robin"
 
What captured my eye in both of these pictures is the use of color to bring the subjects to life, and that's what I tried to do in my piece.
 
The piece I submitted is one I made a few months ago, but fit this challenge perfectly:

Picture8

"Robin Redbreast"

 
Picture13

The focal is made from an etched and soldered bezel with a digital collage topped with antique watch parts and filled in with ICE Resin.  The chain is made from Picasso finish glass lentil beads from Artbeads.com, and copper beads from Rings & Things.
 
As the cutoff is December 31st, it isn't too late for you to enter.  Check out the Art Bead Scene blog for more information and get creating!
