My Handmade Necklace Inspired by Mark Rothko

I love the Abstract Expressionists, as varied as they are. I was watching a PBS documentary on Rothko ("Simon Schama's Power of Art") and making jewelry and this necklace idea came to me. I took the colors of a taupe, orange and blue painting and didn't focus on pattern or material, just color. Like Rothko And it's one of my most beautiful necklaces, if I do say so myself.
