Nave Nave Moe

I was really drawn to the artwork for the March Art Bead Scene challenge.

The name of this painting is Nave Nave Moe (Sacred Spring, Sweet Dreams) and it was painted by Paul Gauguin in 1894.  I love the colors in this painting!  I decided to make something for this challenge.   I made some polymer beads.  I have been playing with some macrame and I love to upcycle stuff from the Thrift Store... so I worked some old seam binding that I found there into a neckpiece.  I wired some beads and put it all together for the March Art Bead Scene Monthly Challenge.




Color Me Tahiti 
 I had fun making the faces and putting it all together!  I have been really drawn to bright colors lately... must be the changing seasons that has me going there!  You should check out all of the entries on flickr.  There are really some great pieces of wearable art inspired by a great piece of wall art!
Yours truly,
M

  1. I remember reading about this challenge. You've done amazing things here! I love the thick, luscious quality of the fabric necklace, and the beautiful beads. This is one of a kind and I think my very favorite yet! (Do I say that every time?) But really, the colors came out so well and I love those leaf pendants. Gorgeous work! You are fantastic at rising to a challenge. :D
