"Art Bead Scene" June Monthly challenge (Украшение по заданию)

     Hello friends! Today, I’d like to show you my earrings which I’ve made for June Monthly challenge at the ArtBeadScene blog. For our inspiration, our host has chosen the painting “Profile on Red Meanders formerly Jeanne d'Arc” (1900) by Odelin Redon.


    I have not been familiar with this artist until now. Wikipedia characterized him as “a French symbolist painter”: I can definitely see a number of symbols in this painting: many “what does it mean” questions come to my mind :).
Here are my earrings:


      About the art beads: I made these glass cabochons during a glass fusion class which I took awhile ago. To make a round cab, you need to cut tiny squares of glass, glue them together, and “bake” in a special kiln.
     For the earrings, I secured the cabs to the brass filigree pieces with wire, attached light green glass bead caps and pink glass beads to the filigrees. I like how the earrings turned out: they have a certain Victorian vibe to them.
