The prompt was a painting by Henri Edmond Cross. It's a vibrantly colored Impressionistic work.
Another motivation to enter this challenge, besides the opportunity to flex my creative muscles, was this GREAT prize! I encourage everyone to tackle the next Nina Design Design Challenge! The prizes are really generous!
Here's what I said about my inspiration:
I was inspired by the points of light captured by the Impressionist style. I thought using Swarovski crystals in tones from the painting would help translate the shifts of color and light. I used dangles to help show movement and make a fun, wearable piece showcasing the sand-dollar charms from Nina Designs.
