|Hummingbird Necklace by BayMoonDesign is available for purchase HERE|
November's ABS Challenge piece is Cattleya Orchid and Three Hummingbirds by Martin Johnson Heade. Out of all of the challenge palettes we've had this year, this one might be the one with the most colors. To avoid feeling overwhelmed, I selected 2 colors from the bulk of the shades-- yellow and green. I also selected shades of gray and purple.

I was inspired to use a focal by BayMoonDesign for this challenge. I created this focal by embossing a floral pattern on a natural brass round disk and applying patinas to create the gold, green, and lavender shades on it. I then put it on top of a silver filigree disk to bring out the gray shades in the piece. I punched a hole at the bottom of the disk to add a hummingbird charm to it since the picture has a gorgeous hummingbird among flowers. In addition to using the focal by BayMoonDesign , I used a sterling silver connector created for the focal and a handmade sterling clasps that I made.
