America Windows, 1977, By Marc Chagall, Art Institute of Chicago
Time to finish up 2016 and the monthly Art Bead Scene's challenges. I am totally in love with the inspiration that was chosen. Those rich blues and all the elegant lines of the stained glass. So very rich.
For some reason, this piece has an Art Noveau feel to it so I ran with that. I was lucky enough to pick up an artisan brass focal from Leslie Watt of Thea Elements.
With this beautiful focal, I decided to go simple on the design of the necklace so it would have the opportunity to really shine. I added some etched brass chain and some sodalite that has incredible color to it.
This necklace is currently for sale at Alchemee Designs and remember that with each purchase, money is donated to Old Dog Haven.
