February 2014 ABS Challenge

My February 2014 ABS Challenge entry. Art Beads by

I have had these Art Beads for the longest time.  When I saw this months Art Bead Scene Challenge Painting I immediately thought of them.  I love the detail of the flower/rose and the leaves. I wire wrapped them to a blingy rhinestone bail (resembles shapes in painting).  Added two sterling silver floral beads (represents the cubes), large seed beads, Czech Bell Flowers and a fancy floral lobster clasp.  Just a simple pendant/necklace design, but definitely soft and pretty.

The Rose Garden, 1920 
by Paul Klee
Oil on cardboard

Paul Klee (1879-1940) is one of the 20th century's most influential and much-loved artists. He is best known for his vibrant color compositions, cubism, cosmic metaphors and fantastic landscapes. 

Thank you for taking the time to stop by!
