Art Bead Scene October 2012 Challenge

Initially, this piece for the Art Bead Scene October Monthly Challenge did not inspire me very much.

Funny how some art immediately resonates and other pieces just…blah.

“New things had to be made out of the fragments.”

It took a little time for me to formulate an idea for the design. Brandi Hussey worked up a color pallette and then I was off.

I had been wanting to try this jump ring and seed bead tutorial shared by The Gossiping Goddess, so I gave that a run through.

(Great tutorial Lesley and thanks for sharing!) I then used this concept for the cords.

Since the art work contains the element of using found objects, I decided to experiment with etching a small piece of brass that I had found while digging in some “junk parts” boxes that I have buried in my inventory.

Out came the trusted and often abused Sharpie marker and the hole punch tool. The rest is history.
