ABS October Challenge

Madame De Pompador
by Francios Boucher
1756
served as this months inspiration.

I had been hoarding a bracelet bar from 
Earthenwood Studios.
I added plenty of delicate charms to contrast the 
 bold shape of the bracelet bar.
So happy to use up so many of my beads on this.
I went with various styles and colors of
Czech glass beads.
Green aventurine and goldtone bugle beads.
and a little silk bow.
