What I love about my pick for this week is that it is not literal at all.
There are so many elements to pick up on in this month's challenge painting, from the birds to the flower to the nest that it is hard to see past that. So it surprises and delights me to see that this is the painting deconstructed. The flamed and enameled matchstick pendants in these earrings really do call to mind the flower. The rugged discs make me think of all the tree bark and the nest. I think these earrings have a very unique look to them!

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!)
Pretty please make sure that you link to your picture in Pinterest so that I have someplace to attribute the picture to! And don't forget to tell us about those art beads!
Deadline to get your pictures posted to the Pinterest boards for the creation of the Monthly Challenge Recap post is Thursday, November 27th...Thanksgiving! Get them in early this month! Let's see what you created!
