September ABS Challenge

September ABS Challenge 
View of the Pond 
by  Vanessa Bell
1919
She was taught by and admired John Singer Sargent.
I had the privilege of viewing his work 
many many years ago at the DIA.
To find out more about Vanessa and her influences
click here.
I was thrilled by the color palate of this painting.
Even more thrilled that I had some Art beads
 that seemed to go with the 
color and feel of the painting.
Suzi Q Bracelet bar and Gaea beads.
The Gaea beads  I used represent the pond,
the greenery, and the inside wall. 
Paired them with misc. Czech glass,
 faceted green Advent.
and antique brass findings.

Very lovely bracelet Terri. The bracelet bar and Gaea beads could not have matched the inspiration better.
