This poster was an Illustration for American Cresent Cycles, done in 1899 by Frederick Winthrop Ramsdell.
I love the colours and the style of this illustration... but once I started playing with glass I just kept seeing the windblown tree silhouettes in the background! Once the focal was done... I dug through my extensive hoarded collection of vintage lucite to come up with a 'chain' to hang the bead from. The lucite is knotted between each grouping and theflameworked glass focal bead is enclosed in a copper frame with an enameled copper bead to set it off!
