Stuck in the Horizon

Lately, I have been stuck on creating focal pieces that are horizontal. I'm not complaining - it's just how ideas are coming to me. First, the felted beads on the wood - then the Peacock Fairy dream necklace in my last post - and now this cute little forest inspired necklace.
Here, I used an actual twig that I drilled holes into. I wired Humblebeads cute gnome and mushroom beads onto it (the mushroom came only as a top so I made a stem for it out of polymer clay). The chain has simple Czech glass beads wired into it in even intervals.
I think I might submit this for the ABS challenge too - I am sure I see some gnomes (or little people) in the one corner of Richard Dadd's painting. Also, I think the colors here go perfectly with the painting - the dark grey of the twig, the touch of red, the muted olive green........

That is just way too darn cute.
Yes, I think you should enter it into ABS! I hope I have time to participate. And I LOVE your little felt balls pendants. So clever. Enjoy the day! Erin

How clever! Did you seal the twig in some way?

Yes, I think it would work for the ABS challenge--go for it!

Thanks everyone! I had thought about sealing the twig at first, but it didn't seem like it was going to decompose in any way so I left it natural.
