|A.Y. Jackson's Red Maples - inspiration for the necklace!|
The competition is called The Great White North Exhibition and it challenged artists to take inspiration from the work of The Group of Seven. The work was on display during Fashion Week in Toronto and the Gallery 18 Karat will also be showing it this summer - so you still have a chance to see all the successful pieces.
Susan took the painting The Red Maples by A.Y. Jackson as her departure point. Nature is a common theme for her and this challenge was tailor-made for her ripening skills as a metal artist. She details the working process in her own blog, which I invite you to visit:http://susanleestudios.blogspot.ca/2015/04/the-making-of-drifting-for-great-white.html
