'Sacramento from the Air' comes from a series of mind's eye images following several trips to Northern California. This bracelet is woven on a loom using 11/0 delica beads and KO thread. It is secured with gold-plated brass magnetic clasps.

Tammy Adams of Paisley Lizard
I used Czech glass beads and black artistic wire to capture the essence of Mondrian's iconic primary colors geometric grid paintings in this modern abstract necklace. 

Cheryl KauhaaPo of Jungle Beads
I enjoyed choosing the 5 colors for this challenge! I started off with a totally different color scheme and decided I needed the pop of the yellow accent! I added some glitz to liven it up! Sterling silver findings.

Jo Pound of Jewelry by Jolane
I made an embroidered bead bracelet on a metal frame using seed beads. I drew out lines in shapes found in his art, and I then filled them in with red, blues, white and yellow. 

Kim Forrer of Kim Forrer Designs
I used acrylic paints on copper to create this necklace trying to capture the geometric designs of Mondrian.
