For their first challenge of 2014, the OTTBS group are challenging members to create something inspired by a famous painting.
I’ve chosen Vincent Van Gogh’s ‘Starry Night’ as my inspiration. There is something special about Van Gogh’s moving night sky with its curved swirling clouds, glowing stars and luminescent crescent moon. In a seeming simple painting there are a lot of interesting features which capture attention.
Inspired by ‘Starry Night’ I have created a simple cabochon necklace with a peyote bezel and a picot edge. The sodalite cabochon and round beads mimic the swirling blue patterns and depth found in the painting.
