I just love this picture, an illustration for American Cresent Cycles, 1899, by Frederick Winthrop Ramsdell. , which is the Art Bead Scene Monthly Challenge inspiration for August. I can't stop looking at the colors and how wonderfully they work together. Since I was so captivated by this painting I decided to try out some of the colors on a few pieces. Here is what I came up with. All 4 are in my Etsy Shop.
Art Nouveau Style Daisy Heart Pendant
This is such a wonderful color combo, I think, inspired by the colors of her dress and hair.
I can't resist putting in a mellow orange to the mix. The thought of the lilies brings this color out in me!!
Here I added some red to the mix. The hand made toggle bar reminds me of the bicycle in Ramsdell's illustration.
This toggle clasp has a hint of fern in a yellow gold and green.
Thank you for stopping by.
