Even though yellow seems to be the predominant color here, I love Savitsky's use of other colors to cool down that hot sun a bit.
I decided to use my little ceramic bird house pendant I won a few months back from Jennifer Jangles! I had been saving it for something special and this project seemed to just call out for it.
I created a "sun" from a copper washer and copper wire that has been balled on both ends with the torch (a few of them also enameled) and an 8mm yellow calcite bead. Once these 2 elements were done, the rest of the necklace sort of fell into place...copper chain, dotted with smaller enameled copper beads in cool shades of seafoam and lichen, along with more yellow, plus a yellow and red enameled filigree bead.
I really like the end result. The bird house is more ornate than the long row of identical houses in the painting, but that is okay...maybe those workers drudging up and down the street had dreams of painting their houses in happy colors :)
I really love these challenges, can you tell?
