My piece is inspired by Monet's La Pie [The Magpie] for Art Bead Scene's January challenge. I used a pewter Lynn Davis bird charm as my focal art bead and to represent the magpie. Her fabulous pewter components can be found here:
I used opal looking stones that reminded me of snow and greyish flower beads that looked like snowflakes to me. I stacked wood beads to represent the fence and more wood for the trees. I included a second art bead, a Green Girl Studios pewter owl which I believe is hiding in the trees in the painting. Lastly I added a handmade vintage pearl bead chain that added to the snowy feel.
