January Art Beads Challenge

Today I completed my entry to the January Art Bead Scene challenge. The challenge was based on interpreting Claude Monet's painting ' The Magpie' or ' La Pie'.

For my necklace I used white cultured freshwater pearls, along with faceted nuggets of Rock Crystal Quartz and grey agate with its patterns of waves and swirls. The necklace closes with a sterling silver toggle at the front from which hangs by little snowbird, a Pewter charms from Green Girl Studios and a grey lampwork bead made by Rosemarie Hanus of Spawnofflame.

I really like the mix of the pearls and the quartz, the clear and opaque works well as a snowy-icy mix to capture the feel of the painting. The toggle clasp and the bird were a good choice as well.

Thank you, Claire. I do like the grey agate beads, had them for awhile and they seemed perfect for this project, had to find the right mix to use them.
