january 2010 ABS - the magpie bracelet

alchemicaljourney.blogspot.com/2010/01/january-art-bead-s...

 

I created the polymer clay beads based on the soft colors of the snow in the painting (they're a bit more brown than I had envisioned), and then drew the upper part of a magpie on copper with snowflake/sparkles and etched and patinaed it. The bracelet seemed to need something more, so i created a spiral charm and added a piece of linen yarn with beads to balance the clasp. The polymer clay beads are on knotted greek leather cording.
