ABS October Challenge

I love the artwork for this month's Art Bead Scene Challenge!  The picture is fun and interesting.  I know that many of you do not like the literal interpretation of these so much but I work with polymer which so lends itself to being literal.  So like it or not I joined in the challenge this month.  I enjoyed making the polymer hedgehog the most.  So here is my interpretation of "A Hedgehog in a Landscape ".


The painting was done by Giovanna Garzoni who was one of the first female artists to do still life paintings.  She lived from 1600 to 1670 and painted this picture sometime between 1643 and 1651... certainly along time ago!




So I got the hedgehog, the acorns and the snail in there.  I used metal leaves from a recycled necklace.  I also get my fiber from the thrift store usually so this piece is a little bit "green"!





I finished the back with a wooden bead for my Hedgehog in a Landscape neckpiece.


Hope you have a great Thursday!  And check out the other entries at the flickr site for the ABS monthly Challenge!

  7. Marian, I love the fibre 'nest' you made for your hedgie. He looks right at home, nestled in amongst the fringe with acorns and leaves close to hand. This will be such fun to wear!
