January ABS Submission

Here is a photo of my ART BEAD SCENE January submission. This month the challenge is to create a piece of jewelry based on the Van Gogh painting Irises. My color palette is a natural for this challenge. This is a freeform peyote beaded bracelet featuring my handmade raku fired ceramic bead focals as seen in the picture. This is a highly detailed bracelet that captures many of the peyote stitches and decorative detail that I love to use.
I am often inspired by paintings. I am especially interested in the colors used by the Canadian Group of Seven and Frida Kahlo.
