Art Bead Scene March 2010 Challenge painting of the same name by Van Gogh . I just didn't get it finished quite in time. I was intrigued by the combination of the blue sky, green leaves and cream colored almond blossoms
and felt challenged to try out some color combinations I don't usually use. I made the necklace mostly with peyote stitch but seems I switched over to a loose kind of herringbone stitch on the straps. All of the ceramic beads and sew on flowers were made by me. Some of them especially for this project. I like the idea of sew on beads and charms for peyote stitch and bead embroidery.
I have just now put a few on Etsy just in case your interest has been perked.
Below is a pic of the necklace before I finished it up this week.. Hard to tell the difference except that it wasn't quite wearable yet. No clasp.
thank you for stopping by
