Shop handcrafted Artisan Jewelry and Luxury Knits by Janet Bocciardi!

I decided this month I would participate in my first Art Bead Scene Monthly Challenge.  Fortunately the inspiration painting inspired me!  

Vintage Button bead embroidered necklace by Honey from the Bee

Lisa Peters ceramic heart Vintage Brass Button with Cherub in Garden

The inspiration painting: 

Cache-cache (Hide and Seek) 1873 by Berthe Morisot Oil on Canvas, 18 1/4" x 21 3/4" The umbrella was a key element for me as were the lace dresses the mother and child were wearing.  I loved the chartreuse against the darker green and the touches of a red.

Fossilized Coral Agate echo the umbrella spines of the umbrella the cherub is holding.



Lucky to find these perfect faceted glass beads in my stash! Fossilized Coral Agate again - lace with a touch of rose.

The sun was playing hide and seek with me as I attempted to get these photos!

I would not fear nor wish my fate, but boldly say each night, to-morrow let my sun his beams display, or in clouds hide them; I have lived today.  Abraham Cowley
