Here’s a bit of a trend lately: Jewelry inspired by fine art. Now that’s a natural fit!
- There’s a great book on this theme, by Judith Durant & Jean Campbell. It’s “Beadwork Inspired by Art: Impressionist Jewelry and Accessories.” (Click to see a review at the Web’s most entertainingly-titled blog, “Snap Out of It, Jean! There’s Beading to be Done!”) The brilliant pieces of jewelry illustrated next to the paintings that inspired them make for an awesome coffee-table book as well as a crafting resource.
- The same pair of authors has a book about Art Nouveau-inspired jewelry (reviewed at Dulcey Heller’s blog).
- A choker inspired by Mondrian just appeared on Dawno’s blog.
- How about a sunflower bead d’après Van Gogh?
