This month, Lindsay Starr chose Moon for the Art Elements Theme of the Month. I was initially worried that I wouldn't have anything suitable since I used a bunch of moon themed things over the last couple of years. I shouldn't have worried... I did have a few appropriate things squirreled away! The problem ending up being finding the time to make things. January got busier than I had been planning for!
|My moon-themed art beads... fine pewter by Green Girl, mixed media resin pendant and ceramics by Gaea, and lampwork by unknown artist.|
Some of the beads that I ended up using were in my original collection of beads for this pendant, some were plucked from an Allegory Gallery bead blend, and some from a gift of Swarovski lovelies from Brenda Schweder from the Adornments Retreat. I decided to go with an asymmetrical design strung on one side, links and chain on the other. I kept it all to a palette of black, greys, silvers, and a tiny bit of white... colors of the moon and moonlight as well as the night sky in which it hangs.
I thought I'd share this one too. It wasn't made for this challenge specifically, but for yesterday's Inspired by Reading Book Club. I had some fun with riveting. I made the moon shape with some textured copper scrap left over from the Christmas ornaments I made last year and used some little spacers underneath to give it some dimensionality. If you're curious about my full book club post, you can read it HERE.
As you can see, I didn't get around to some of the more colorful moon options that I had pulled out. Tomorrow's another day!
This is a blog hop... please check out what the other participants have been inspired to make this month!
