Tres Personajes - August Art Bead Scene Challenge
Tres Personajes, (Three People) 1970
This month's Art Bead Challenge is Tres Personajes painted by the Mexican Modernist Rufino Tamayo. It is regarded as a masterpiece of the artist's
mature period, the synthesis and culmination of a career and a
celebration of his approach to universalism in art via color,
abstraction and texture. As soon as I saw it I knew that a beautiful glass bobbin byLea Avroch of LA Jewelry Designs would be the perfect focal for a necklace that is inspired by this painting.
I had on hand some lush gray leather from Nina Designs so I was set. I had the colors, abstract quality, and texture of the painting. Coming up with the design was the hard part. Before Lea Avroch had a flash sale on facebook in July, I had never even see or heard of a glass bobbin. It is a sewing bobbin that Lea worked her magic on. When I saw it, I knew that I had to have it. I just love the idea of making something so pretty from a bobbin. I am so glad that the August Art Bead Scene Challenge pushed me to use Lea's bobbin so quickly. It is a unique necklace to add to my etsy store which I am stocking for the holiday season.
