everything's coming up roses

The Art Bead Scene challenge art for September 2014 is this ethereal beauty called The White Rose and the Red Rose, 1902 by Margaret Macdonald.

 

Since the subject matter is the rose, I focused my attention there. I just started by picking up some clay that I had lying around and started twirling it, never really sure what I was doing. And then I noticed that these twirls resembled teeny-tiny rosebuds. I made each rosebud by hand, affixed it to a long and slender base in an antique bronze color to pull out that veil of antiquity that covers the inspiration. The finishing touch is that little hint of bronze on the edges of each petal, that remind me of all the roses I used to save over the years.

 

I made each rosebud by hand, and painstakingly placed it in just the right spot, affixing it to a long and slender base in an antique bronze color to pull out that veil of antiquity that covers the inspiration.
