Art Bead Scene Monthly Challenge for May

This month, the inspiration for Art Bead Scene’s monthly challenge is Berthe Morisot’s “Hide and Seek”:



You can find more information on the artist and the painting at the Art Bead Scene  blog.

I love the color palette – the warm clay tones in particular - for this challenge, and decided to make my jewelry piece based on that:


I used a simple bangle design and covered the heavy gauge copper wire with coiled copper wire and handmade lampwork beads from Firebabies and Gardanne Beads.


I decided to spice up the design by wrapping long strands of copper wire with balled-up ends over the beads and coils, again bringing in the deep pinky-clay colors from the painting.


Take a couple of minutes to check out the other beautiful entries at Art Bead Scene’s Flickr group.

* If you are interested in purchasing this bangle, you can find it in my Etsy shop.
