This month's inspiration piece is by Claude Monet. When I saw the piece, I thought of a cabochon that I had bought with the tree from Klimt's Tree of Life painting.
Odd that I thought of Klimt from a Monet painting. Perhaps it was that I had the cabochon sitting on the table when I was looking at the inspiration piece. I spotted the orange in the painting first so that may be why I was drawn to the Klimt cabochon. The cabochon is from Glass Art Cabochons on etsy. Sandy has a lovely variety of cabochons available in her shop. I thought that using copper wire would best accent the orange in the cabochon as well as highlight the orange in the inspiration piece.
Since I wanted to let the beauty of the cabochon shine and be the focal point, pearls seemed the most logical option. Continuing the copper theme, I handmade the fish hook with a wrapped loop. I connected jumprings so that the fish hook could fit into any of the loops to make the necklace the perfect length for any outfit.
