This Week's Featured Designer - Kiwiken

Each Monday the Art Bead Scene features a Designer of the Week. I'm thrilled to pick my favorite from the Monthly Challenge entries. Each person participating in this month's challenge is creating a piece based upon this photo by John Singer Sargent.

My choice this week is a gorgeous necklace by Kiwiken.

From her blog, she states:

"[The painting] ... It’s so… soft. Sweet. Girly. Romantic. And I just don’t have a hand for that stuff. But, I had to try. So I got some pinks and purples and a nice dark green, and sat down to make some “hidden magic”.  It was my first serious attempt at this technique."

I think she nailed it.  I love the romanticism of the necklace, with the little bit of complexity the polymer clay brings to the picture.  The flowers pick up upon the paintings motif without overdoing it.  What can I say?  I just love this necklace.
