Art Bead Scene October Challenge Entry


It has been awhile since I entered one of ArtBeadScene's monthly challenges, but when I saw the painting that the ABS editors chose as the inspiration for October's contest, I decided to enter.  It is Kirt Schwitters's 1919 painting titled "Revolving."  

I created these earrings about a month ago, but immediately thought of them when I saw the painting.  What do you think?  Are they a good fit for the theme?   They are from my Ancient Romance Series - Cleopatra's Jewelry Box Collection, and are titled "Secrets Kept."   They were created by me using polymer clay, alcohol ink, embossing powder and acrylic paint.  

And please check out the other entries in ABS's flickr photostream if you have a minute.

Hi Lynda,
I like yours the best, not just because it is the best, I think it fits the theme best. Your earrings are simple, not overdone. I think that is what the artist was trying to say. As he said, things were scarce, so you use what ever you have. There is beauty in simlpicity. Let the art speak to you. That is true with all of your work, nothing is overdone.

Got your vapors handy?

Thank you so much, Kashmira and John.

John, it is harder to do a simple piece, too, because there is no place to hide the flaws. That's why I like them, though. They are a real challenge to execute.

Thanks again, my friends!

Wait a minute! You didn't create these with that inspiration in mind? Holy cow. They look they are a part of each other. Very cool submission for the challenge!

Thank you, Hope. No, isn't that funny? I made these a month or so ago, before I saw the painting. :)
