I recon ,it is a very difficult task to even attend to match (as in beads!) the beauty of "The Milkmaid" of Johannes Vermeer.
This is what I manage to combine ,using the beads I have:
The Milkmaid bracelet The_mi10
From right to left:

Chocolate Parrot as for the foot warmer on the floor with the Delf tiles behind it,
FB Berret-as for Vermeer,although there are no portraits of him,
the three colors of the winter clothes of the maid-the heavy red wool skirt,the blue apron and the sturdy yellow chamois leather top,
the pearl -the white crisp linen cap (and a hint to the another famous painting of him-Girl with a Pearl Earring), the WS Plum as for the stoneware Dutch oven in which the maid pours her milk ,
FB Trompe L'Oeil and Cream Armadillo for the focal point of the paiting,the pitcher with milk,
Viking Knot and WS Rosewood for the basket and the vibrant bread,
Wave of Dreams for the blue table cloth,
Coffee Mug ( I needed some vessel with a handle) and Blue Fizz for the Studded beer jug with a pewter lid, Heartbeat gold for the brass marketing pail ( and for my love for this amazing masterpiece),
WS Rosewood for the hanging bread basket,
House for the window,
WS Ebony for the black ebony frame above the basket and the pail,
Frames for the frame of the painting
and finally the Tulip lock.

I hope I wasn't too boring with this endless explanation.

Love your bracelet, what a task! sunny Love

the thought that came to my mind,

just imagine we had access to the Rijksmuseum and could overnight exchange the original picture against a very good copy where the girl would wear your FaeryBracelet! queen cat

I don't see how it could be better, it's warm, earthy, natural. I love your use of the wood sprites. Painter

Wow - the additional picture really shows off the bracelet so much nicer (and I already loved the orginal pic).
