Day at the Beach

 

INSPIRATION:

I was inspired by the points of light captured by the Impressionist style.  I thought using Swarovski crystals in tones from the painting would help translate the shifts of color and light.  I used dangles to help show movement and make a fun, wearable piece showcasing the sand dollar charms from Nina Designs.

 

 

Summer Breeze

 

INSPIRATION:

The wonderful colors in Henri Edmond Cross’ painting inspired me to use rich greens and burgundy colors.  The starfish charm is a fun addition to the beach theme.  The silk ribbon softens the look.
