|Meadow in Bloom|
It's time for the ABS April challenge
WOW ! A whole meadow full of flowers to inspire me !
How could I resist making those glorious wild poppies?
However , ABS is a chance for me to think outside the box.
So I decided not to make lifelike poppy blossoms .
After all, Monet did not paint photographic images .
I decided I would create beads that represented my impression of wild poppies .
I really wanted to contrast the bright orange with the misty lilac tone .
Off I went to rummage through my box of purple and purplish beads.
Turns out there were plenty of good matches .I Love purple .
I choose some rough cut fluorite . Meadows are not precisely groomed and well manicured like formal gardens. The beauty of a meadow is wild and carefree. I thought the rough cut beads fit that idea perfectly . Keeping with an informal natural look, I finished with torn gauze in bright grassy chartreuse green .
I can tie this piece tightly to make it into a choker or more loosely for a longer style .
An easy to wear necklace in cheerful brights .
Perfect to wear when the day is gloomy or
on a day I feel gloomy!
