`It seems very pretty,' she said when she had finished it, `but it's rather hard to understand!'
(You see she didn't like to confess, even to herself, that she couldn't make it out at all.)
`Somehow it seems to fill my head with ideas -- only I don't exactly know what they are!
Lewis Carroll, Through the Looking Glass
Old images of my paintings are the centerpieces of my NEW Mixed Media Necklaces that will debut at the HeART of WinTer show in early February. I don't have files of all of my old paintings but there are plenty to choose from.
If there is a painting in particular that you would like on a necklace please get in touch with me(not likely) or the ever-more-accessible Jen O'Connor--I am willing to customize a little but I can't do true custom orders without getting nauseous...
The centerpieces are mixed media on stainless--the backs are cool papers and everything is oxidized and really pretty in that old jumbled way I love. They look like paper in the images but they're actually very,very solid--I had to go through several orders of metal to get it the right thickness--not too thin but not so heavy that give you a headache. There are brass castings from vintage molds, escutcheons, old transit tokens and important "stuff" I've been collecting for years, semi-precious and otherwise cool stones and old czech beads, and whatever else I can get my hands on that has some kind of Bohemian chicness. The oxidized, solid brass chains are all different styles--different lengths are fastened together with more objects d'art. And the fasteners are mostly pretty cool oxidized copper or brass swirls and toggles but I am trying to get some others that are old and you know, just something that looks like something I would use--so stay tuned!
Tasie grabbed a few when she was home for the holidays and reports that they're a hit at Sundance.
