Perfect Pairings :: Ann Schroeder + Starry Road Studio + ArtyBecca + SueBeads

This was our only entry so far this month, but it would have caught my attention no matter what. As Miss Ann tells it, the beauty of the autumn season - like this painting by Milton Avery - demands that we 'wake up and look around you'! The bright and almost dissonant hues that Avery chose are well represented in this stacked necklace design. The white of the branch-y tree, the soft yellow of the sky, the brilliant blue of the leafy tree, the candy pink of the swath on the hillside... all are represented here in a glorious array. There is a element of fun in this necklace that encourages you to embrace the delightful changes happening around you as we celebrate Fall.

Just a friendly reminder... We have a slightly new format for uploading your pictures for consideration for the Perfect Pairings each Wednesday, as well as the Monthly Challenge Recap post. We are now using Pinterest! You can find more details in this post about the exciting new changes, including a board devoted to art beads inspired by the monthly challenge! (Ooh! Look! More pretty beads to lust after!)

Love this! References Fall, and keeps some vibrancy in the color palette of the bead choices. Super pairing!

Thank you for the post and the nice comment! I hope more people get a chance to participate this month. I love the painting and would love to see more interpretations. The new Pinterest way of posting is super easy. I was never good at Flickr! :)

I'm trying to look at entries for the July contest, featuring an Edmund Dulac illustration from The Mermaid by Hans Christian Andersen. I found the designs but would like to see larger pictures than the ones at your link. Looks like they should enlarge but they don't.
