This Week's Assignment:
Pick your absolute, all time favorite piece of art work (painting, sculpture, photograph, illustration, fabric design, etc.) and create jewelry inspired by this piece.
Tips for Designing from Art:
Start with the color and major motifs of the art work and find beads that relate to your inspiration piece. Pick of piece of art work that makes you crazy happy every time you see it. Ask yourself - what do you love about it? Is it the color, the mood, the story? Try to capture that in your jewelry.
|The Starry Night by Van Gogh|
I selected The Starry Night by Van Gogh. It is a favorite of mine. In fact, I have a copy of it hanging in my home. I love all of the beautiful shades of blue. I find them very calming. The painting shows the village of Saint-Rémy under a swirling sky. There is a cypress tree to the left.
