Art Bead Scene March Challenge

This necklace has been quite the challenge. I just love it but I have struggled all month to get a photo I am truly happy. Today I got the best photos so far even though I'm still not happy with them. But this is a challenge isn't it and my biggest challenge was taking the photos not making the piece.

I had many of the ingredients for this necklace set aside for quite some time but it wasn't until I considered adding the bright orange Lucite and coconut shell beads that I finally had what I wanted. The Art Bead Scene Challenge piece for this month by Paul Gaugin gave me the inspiration to add that punch of bright color and that was it! I call it Flower Child!

  3. Hi Kristi! I love this necklace. I think that you nailed the color palette so well. I was going by the links in the post for the blog hop like Heather told me. I should have looked further. I just added this to the ABS post. Thanks for entering this and I look forward to next month!
    Enjoy the day!
