Necklace inspired by the art piece Illustration for American Crescent Cycles, 1899 byFrederick Winthrop Ramsdell
This necklace is made with Artisan Lampwork Beads by Mandrel on Etsy. I love her beads because of the unique quality of them and the metallic glass that she uses. So these beads were just perfect. The focal flower bead and other accent lampwork beads with their cycles of silver flowing around them, as well as, just a hint of green in the clear encased beads are just so lovely. The Natural Brass Pendant reminds me of the women's beautiful hair and dress, the brass Vintaj circles are the cycle's wheels, brass chain is the bike chain and the brass flowers are the floating field of flowers around the gorgeous picture...I hope my interpretation works~~~~~
I, also, used Swarovski Crytsals, freshwater pearls and necklace is wired wrapped in bronze and non-tarnish silver plated wire.
