Playing along- Kandinsky's Muse

Although I am now officially a contributor to the Art Bead Scene blog, I cannot officially play and win the monthly challenges but I am encouraged to play along anyway! I created this bracelet in the spirit of Kandinsky's No. 23. The colors are found in the painting- rich burgundy, orange, yellow, and the lampwork glass beads mimic the dots and lines in the painting. The golden glass drop charm adds to the color palette nicely. I created a clasp using a drilled stone connector. You loosen it up, and then pull the leather pulls to tighten it.

  8. Aw, man! You can't enter? But you have the painting right there at work. No fair! The bracelet is cool! I like the playful colors.

    I knew you'd want one of those owl stamps. I laughed when I read your comment on my blog. We are such owl lovers!

I'm sorry to have to turn on the word verification here, but I got fed up with spammers comments!
