April Component of the Month Reveal!

Its that time of the month. LOL

Time for the COM reveal at Art Elements blog! ( What did you think I meant?)

This month Jen Cameron of Glass Addictions sent the yummiest swirly cosmic galaxy beads. At least that is what I think when I see them:


So my bead arrived the day I left for Rochester. And I missed it by a few hours. So I kept dreaming up things I wanted to do… and they aren’t even jewelry things… I tried to capture the ideas on my iPad – and I warn you… this is a NEW medium for me and these are rough sketches. ( But if I am going to learn I have to start somewhere…)

The first would be a stoneware/ceramic sculpture – sized so that the bead is a planet held in her upraised hands. ( It WAS just Earth Day.) Maybe 8″? But tapered to a point like the Cycladic figures I adore – and standing in a wrought iron stand.





My original idea: app 12″ tall. Stoneware clay

Then after the trip to Rochester – I had this really cool driftwood, perfect for a mermaid to sit on :


My second idea – small polymer mermaid on driftwood.

And sadly neither of those happened. I got back on the 25th! And the reveal is one week to the day. So I took a break from glazing on Sunday and this happened:


I am thinking this would be a wall hanging… it is rather long. But it was such a visual treat to pull gems to go with this glass! Simply gorgeous. And yes – its a moon hare motif that is so very “me”.

I love this bead – and the longer I look at it the more ideas I have – who knows? I may still start that stoneware goddess figure.

For now – take a look at my AE team mates and out guests this month!

    This is lovely Jenny – that gorgeous chubby little hare is a perfect foil for Jens bead but…I would love to see those sculptures come to fruition even if with a different beads. :0)

    Lovely!!! I do love it the way it is-the silk ribbon, the hare and all the lovely things dangling from the focal bead. BUT, I can see that goddess in clay holding up that swirly bead and it would be perfect!

    Ooh! I love those bits of purple in the bead you got… so pretty! While I’m digging what you did, I hope you explore the goddess idea!

    I really, really love your design it works so well, I love the hare and the moon theme it is just so perfect but oh my the stoneware/ceramic sculptures are a must!!! Even if you have to do it with a different bead/beads that goddess with the wrought iron stand is going to be amazing!!!
