Bead Table Wednesday Focuses on My August ABS Challenge Earrings

Bead Table Wednesday is designed by Heather Powers to help share what is on our table today.  This Wednesday, I am sharing with you a pair of earrings that are inspired by the Art Bead Scene Challenge for August 2014.

The Indian Rug (or Red Slippers), 1942 
by Anne Redpath
The August Art Bead Challenge is a rug by Scottish artist Anne Redpath.  The vivid colors and flat patterning of this painting owe much to Matisse. The 'tipped-up' perspective reflects Redpath's admiration for early Italian painting. Redpath was fascinated by color and texture.

Red and Teal Earrings featuring Marsha Neal Studio Ceramics
I focused on the bright red and teal in the rug.  Marsha Neal Studio red ceramics are the perfect color paired with teal Irish waxed linen thread.  I love the texture that these ceramics and thread have.  They remind me of flowers and  the texture in the rug.  These red and teal earrings are available for purchase HERE.


  1. These are just beautiful! You have quite the way with earrings.

  2. Oh, these really do give you that feeling of texture that's in the work. Beautiful!

  3. I love the colors and textures in these wonderful earrings!

  4. Love those red disks and how you turned them into such lovely earrings!!

  5. I love the way you wove the linen through the disks. Those are such pretty ruffled edges! A perfect complement to this month's challenge. Thanks for joining us at the Art Bead Scene! Enjoy the day. Erin
