This cuff has been floating around in my head, teasing me a little with the idea of it. Putting things on paper and luring them into the 3D space, in my creative world, usually means they are two totally different things. What I mean is, that sometimes when I set out to make something that I have drawn and can see so clearly in my mind, the piece takes over midstream. Not like a strange sci-fi crazed creature, but more like the something happy infiltrated my body as I was creating on some mindless drug that distracted me. In my minds eye I had originally seen this with an acrylic layer in the middle to give it more height with all the other layers, I visualized gaps between the layers to make it look more like rings from the top and the two bands (that ended up as three) coming together in the back to a point. My muse tends to have a sense of humor and I think she knows she can distract me with a great Pandora station! This was one of those times! Not that I am complaining, as I see it I now have a bonus design I haven't made and I am quite happy with how this one turned out! It is on it's way with the stork to Chicago to go live with Terry Graziano (The AMAZING hat artist I will forever rave about!) with some almost matching earrings and my freeform ring. She is actually getting it sight unseen since she gave me free reign with the words silver, chunky and multiple textures stuck in my head. I sure hope she likes it!
And how about that 11-11-11 11:11:11! What did you do to celebrate?
