Monet Garden Necklace ©2000 by Cynthia Rutledge

Take a moment to day dream about what the gardens in Paris must look like in the spring. It is no wonder that the famous impressionist painter, Claude Monet was so inspired by the burst of color that nature alone could master. This necklace was influenced by the work of Monet and his choice of subject, nature. Thin tubes of peyote stitch, resembling stems and vines, twist softly around the neck to close with a handmade button. The focal point is a sculptural, 3 dimensional Trumpet flower from which cascade thin tubes that end in a burst of color and shape. The sculptural shapes at the end of each tube give the impression of thistles. Instrumental in my work is the use of a controlled color palette.

Now that I am offering Monet Garden Necklace as a kit, I have designed six wonderful palettes of color for your enjoyment. In making the Monet Garden Necklace Kit you will be using Peyote, Herringbone, and Brick stitches, along with surface embellishment techniques, to create this stunning necklace.
