(Please feel free to read the AJE post where I introduced these Mixed Media pieces, and discussed their construction.)
January. Beginnings. Resolutions. Blank slate. Fresh start. Intentions.
1: a determination to act in a certain way : resolve
2: import, significance
3 a : what one intends to do or bring about
“Live with intention.
Walk to the edge.
Play with abandon.
Choose with no regret.
Appreciate your friends.
Continue to learn.
Do what you love.
Live as if this is all there is.”
The piece was in olive polymer, with accents of copper and teal. The teal was so subtle – I wanted to enhance it with gems. Here its apatite. The greens are green garnet, long a favorite of mine. Copper chain, bead caps and wire are the metallic notes. The jade? jasper? beads on one side in the back are sprinkled with apatite as well. The pearls on the other side do have a coppery sheen.
I am deeply satisfied with the focal and the necklace overall and have worn it many times this month. I do have more of these mixed media pieces in the works – and will have them at Berks Bead Bazaar March 1-2.
I look forward to exploring the creations of my AJE colleagues and the guest bloggers this month. Plese join me? Links are below.
