I was attracted to that large swirling focal immediately with this design. I love the simple graphic quality of this handmade component as it speaks to me of the rustic and almost child-like exuberance with which Avery has painted this glorious fall landscape. The fact that Miss Kathy also made her own swirl component to match just makes my heart do a jig! The colors in this piece are not as vibrant as the inspiration, but have the same tonal quality and the muted shades work so well with the orange-y copper handmade components. A beautiful, eclectic design!

Erin-thank you for your kind words. They are appreciated!
I love Marsha's ceramics. I enjoy using her components.
Kathy your necklace is just so pretty and a "Perfect Pairing" for sure!
I really like this! The painting was almost too bright for me but this toned down version has inspired me to look again.
