2 pieces for Art Bead Scene March Challenge

Art Bead Scene's Monthly Challenge for March is this painting by Marc Franz, called Deer in Forest.


I have made two pieces inspired by this painting. First off is a bracelet.


  • Deer/fox by TreeWingStudio
  • Saffron colored patinated chain by MissFickleMedia
  • Dark blue colored patinated chain by MissFickleMedia
  • Purple colored patinated toggle bar by MissFickleMedia
  • Forest green metallic matte Magatama beads
  • Rusty red metallic matte facetted czech glass beads

Isn't it a little bit funny that I all along have seen that creature as a deer. It was only when I was looking at the close-up photo belo, in my computer earlier today that I realized that it actually has a thick tail and that it instead of course is a FOX. It doesn't matter in the end. It is so sweet laying there all curled up. And foxes also lives in the woods.



And as I was going I suddenly found myself having made these earrings too. Sort of picking up, shape wise, on the swirly white lines in the painting, in which I kind of see the sound of the wind blowing through the tree leaves, and a just in general a magical and mystical atmosphere of the woods.


  • The verdigris green patinated swirls by MissFickleMedia (there's three on either ear ring)
  • Earwires and large jump rings from Vintaj
  • Rusty red/brown seed beads
  • Oxidized brass wire

Check out some more contributions in the ABS flickr group. There will be more of them coming until the end of the month.

All my best,
Malin
