Street Scene in Montmartre: Le Moulin a Poivre by Vincent Van Gogh
Paris: February-March, 1887
For more information on painting,
please see the Art Bead Scene page.
All the ceramic art beads in this piece were handmade by Natalie Pappas of NKP Designs Art Beads. There are 5 types of Natalie's beads used in this piece representing various elements, colors, and designs of the painting. The beads were carefully selected from Natalie's collection...
The bead highest on the neck
has the color and swirls of the clouds.
These silver beads represent the windmills.
The darker blue found in several areas of the painting.
The color and diamond shape found in the design of the cart.
This is the top section of the pendant.
The tan-color bead with the lines
is reminiscent of the pavers in the painting
The red bead is the color of many of the objects in the art.
I designed the bottom section of the pendant
to represent the French flags flying,
while the stick beads are for the fence line
that works its way across the horizon.
Finally, a look at the pendant as a whole.
There will be a blog tour on March 30th showing other ABS entries. On that day, please follow this link to see more!
Thank you to the ABS for another wonderful selection of art for our jewelry inspiration. And another thank you to Natalie for designing such perfect beads for my entry!
