November Challenge Art Bead Scene

I have wanted to get involved in more of the challenges that are being issued in the blog world. When I saw the inspiration for the November Art Bead Scene challenge, I knew I had to get to work.

 Tree of Life, Stoclet Frieze, 1909

Gustav Klimt 1862-1918




I apologize for the poor quality of these photos, but it is cold and rainy, 
there just wasn't any light today. Seems we spent the whole day in twilight.

Oh I love the tree of life.Lovely jewelery too.Thanks for sharing!I know what you mean about light.Today we are having a dark and dreary day here.

Was für ein wundervoller Tree of Life, liebe Renate!!! Toll auch, dass Du die Dreiecke und Scheiben aus Klimts Bild in Deine Kette einfließen lassen hast. Und das Grün ist ebenfalls wieder mit drin. Das ist "Wearable Art" mal absolut wörtlich genommen: ein Kunstwerk als Kette, eine Kette als Kunstwerk!

That's a great interpretation of the Klimt. Your wirework is just amazing! The use of copper is particularly special-- that material was very well liked by those artists. Beautiful work!
