ABS September Challenge

Art Bead Scene's September Challenge is an inspiration from Giuseppe Arcimboldo's painting "Flora."

This is what I've made:
The inside of the cuff is also textured. =)

I love how the color pallete reflects the color of fall which I don't usually use in my clay pieces. I am used to making pretty floral cuffs so I didn't pay much attention to the flowers in the painting. Instead, it’s my first time to incorporate those really bold colors like orange, amber and some tinges of brown and red which paired beautifully with some of my texture sheets. I kept the flowers into a minimum but I decided to add some filigrees and rhinestones to make them look like art beads and made the piece more stunning.
