Meadow Tree of Life necklace

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.

Inspiration piece: Walk in the Meadows at Argenteuil by Monet

  1. What an elegant necklace, Angela. Your choice of copper wire and the pearls compliment the cabochon perfectly and your wire work is perfect!
