Description

The postcard I chose is from www.masani.com and distributed for free in Swiss restaurants and bars. On the backside you can read: "Dear revelers, the neigborhood is thankful for a peaceful night wishing you a good night as well. The city police" The cards are part of the prevention work of St.Gallen (Switzerland) city police.

The colors given by the postcard forced me to use bugle beads because they were the only beads I have in that specific backgrund purple-blue. Bugle beads are a challenge oh their own.....
Besides the colors I also tried to integrate shapes, proportions and design elements of the postcard into my necklace without copying the picture itself. The yellow circle is the most obvious example, the fringes represent the fuzzy surround of the bat's face and the bent rope follows the edge lines of the bat's wings - just to name a few.

This necklace is my entry for the Etsy Beadweavers' (EBWC) November 2013 challenge with the theme "Picture Postcard Palette".
Please visit our team blog, http://www.etsy-beadweavers.blogspot.com between the 9th and 15th of November and vote for your favorite entry! Thank you!

Measurements:
Length neck down: 40 cm (15 3/4 inch)
Width of the pendant: 6,5 cm (2 5/8 inch)
