What Inspires You Beading Contest

Recently, hosted a "What Inspires You" beading contest.  The point of the contest is to show a picture of your inspiration and a picture of the piece of jewelry you created based on the inspiration.  I entered the contest, and would love it if you would support me by voting for the piece of jewelry I created.  If you would like to vote for me, please click here and press the vote button.  If you like my piece, please also consider sharing the website to vote for me with your followers, friends, and family members.  I'm a poor college student and could really use the bead money!!!

My inspiration was this picture by Beverly Ash Gilbert.  I found it on her blog and was immediately inspired to create the necklace.

I was inspired by the beautiful earthy colors and the shadow form of the grasses.  I used the colors as the basis for the colors in the necklace.  I used the inspiration of the shadow form to create a black tree against the colored background.  I used a free form beadweaving technique to create the necklace and the pendant.  In the center of the pendant, there is a large green venetian glass bead.


 I think the necklace definitely resembles the photo, without copying it exactly.  If you agree, please take a moment and vote for my necklace!

Thank you for your love and support!
