Art Bead Scene: April Challenge

This month, the challenge for the Art Bead Scene comes from an inspiration of a painting by Boreas by John William Waterhouse named Boreas (For more information on this challenge, please visit http://artbeadscene.blogspot.com/2012/04/april-monthly-challenge.html).

Boreas by John William Waterhouse, 1903
Oil on canvas
68.8 x 94 cm

With this beautiful painting, I decided to make a bracelet. Using polymer clay and filigrees, I created a focal bead with a blue background and white miniature daffodil flowers.

I also made lentil swirl beads reminiscent of the flow of air blowing through the blue veil of the woman in the painitng.

String them all together and this is the result:

  1. Your focal is beautiful and you've definitely captured the strong north winds..
