January 2015

This month's Art Bead Scene challenge came from a very interesting artist Friedensreich Hundertwasser

Imagine Tomorrows World orange version
Stell' Dir die Welt von morgen vor
By Friedensreich Hundertwasser

Hundertwasser, a visionary and responsible creator, mobilizes the power of his art in order to spread his message for a life in harmony with nature and the individual creativity.

He is a symbolic figure for a non-conformist way of life, a forerunner of environmental protection and an ambassador for a self-determined alternative existence.

I personally was excited to be inspired by this artist.
I had saved this stamp that was on a package I received because I thought it was so cool! The background is metal with a leather frame for the stamp. I applied resin to seal. The dangles are Czech beads.

 My second bracelet is a copper piece that I colored with the melting pot embossing. I scratched into it to reflect the upper background of the painting. Behind the top piece is an up-cycled tin. The accent beads came from a glass bead making class that I took with Terri G. and my daughter Simone. Simone didn't feel well and layed down and slept about 2/3 rds of the class. About the moment I thought she really wasn't going do do anything she stood up, went to the work bench and cranked out a bunch of small beads. I saved them and I think they went perfectly with this challenge.

These cats I made because I used to have an orange striped cat when I was younger. He was a big tomcat, I said his name was Oscar but it might have been Felix (The Odd Couple) Any how the painting kept making me think of an orange striped cat. I used polymer clay and some thingy I found at the hardware store. I had made another bead but it didn't photograph very well and I all ready took it apart...

Theme Marsala Pantone Color of the Year

I love this color! I made earrings with shaped copper. I used triangle seed beads for the top. I felt they represented the Strawberry Ice Pantone Color. I up-cycled the ball chain for the dangles.
