Art Bead Scene ~ June Challenge

Feuilles 1928
By Seraphine Louis

This painting of leaves by Seraphine 
served for this months 
Art Bead Scene challenge.

I went a head and rented 
 this critically acclaimed movie
"Seraphine"
Invited Katherine T. who also like to participate 
in the ABS challenges to watch it with me.

My favorite part of the movie was
 how they portrayed her success.
In a way it reminded me of Shirley temple
 in the Little Princess.
Also when they showed her collecting 
pigments from various sources.
Something we are told she did not reveal.
So if that part in the movie of her collecting wax 
wasn't fictionalized...
We may know why these paintings 
have a waxy look to them.

For more information about the
 artist you can check out this link. to the ABS post.

I snagged this Bracelet connector by Susi Q Beads
 when I saw it on  
one of the ABS posts on Etsy finds. 
I love to make bracelets.
So I went for it!
Added a few Gaea beads and Vintaj leaves.
Along with some misc. beads and findings.

I love this bracelet it came out soooo pretty. Pinks and corals so summery, and so feminine. Thanks for sharing.

Terri this is a lovely bracelet. The bracelet bar very nicely hints at a leaf without being only about a leaf.

This is so special. You could wear it six days a week and never get tired of it.
