Art Bead Scene challenge is "Morning in the Garden at Vaucresson," by Edouard Vuillard.
I created the cylindrical focal bead pendant from translucent polymer clay, using an image transfer technique. The image depicted is a rose mallow bush. The translucent clay was layered onto a base clay of soft butter yellow. The translucent clay makes it appear the image is floating on the surface, and it has a soft luminescence.
I kept to the Garden theme by creating matching rose beads from polymer clay, which compliment the centers of the rose mallow in the image. I embellished the focal with Vintaj Magnolia leaf bead caps and added Vintaj's Deco Vines Filigree components, which are appropriate for the time the painting was created; and faceted, round Swarovski crystal with an AB finish, to symbolize the sparkle of early morning dew drops.
