Call to Create Artist

I know you all remember our Call to Create and the reward of participating ... just take a look at the cover of Handcrafted Jewelry in the sidebar ... you'll get all of those beads!  It's a busy time of year, but just knowing that you stand a really good chance of winning I hope will coax you into a submission ... actually since it's a random drawing, all of the pressure is off.  Just get something together, will you please? Remember, we're making handmade with handmade.  I want more eye candy ... more ... more ... more, which is what Kristi Bowman gave us with her beautiful submission.



Here's Kristi's description of the piece ...


PMC (precious metal clay) Lentil Bead Pendant made by Kristi Bowman. Strung with Carved Green Jade, pale Yellow Howlite Carved Rounds, Yellow Jade Lanterns, wood beads and faceted silver spacer beads.


Color is the first thing that attracted me to this piece.   Kristi balances the warm tones of the yellow, orange, and copper with the cool tones of the green and fine silver. Her composition is lovely.  She starts with an symmetrical design near the focal point and quickly changes to one that is dynamically asymmetrical.  The texture in the focal pendant is echoed in the beads and balanced by some very shiny copper!  A very lovely piece ... thank you, Kristi.


So next week, we'll be looking forward to profiling a new piece.  Schedule an appointment with yourself to make your entry ... because you know you want to win!
