Perfect Pairings :: SJ Designs Jewelry + Stone Designs Studio

Nothing says Art Nouveau more to me than the graceful curving lines of a dragonfly or damselfly.
This month we are treated to a stunning glass lamp that must look absolutely breathtaking when lit. Sarajo Wentling captured the cursive flowing lines of the dragonfly lamp and the color scheme perfectly in this romantic necklace.

While you are checking out her design thought process, be sure to click through and read her review of her weekend with our own Heather Powers in the annual Inspired by Nature retreat that was just last weekend!

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 post a link in your Pinterest description
so that I have someplace to attribute the picture! 
And don't forget to tell us about those art beads - providing links to bead makers is appreciated!

Deadline October 29th to get your pictures posted to the Pinterest boards for the creation of the Monthly Challenge Recap post for October 31st.

TIP: If you upload your photo rather than pin it from your blog or shop, edit the pin (the little pencil button) and add your link as the source. Save your edits. This will allow us to click directly on your photo and go to your blog or shop to read more about your entry. If you don't, I might not be able to access the photo to share it.

Always a treat to see what Sarajo creates from these inspirations! Her knack for gather just the right art beads and findings is amazing. Ex...not only that gorgeously colored focal, but those sweet lavender leaves!

I agree that Sarajo gets these challenges just right. This necklace is a great example. Perfect colors and theme. Beautiful!
