Stardust: A David Bowie Blog Hop

by Staci Louise Smith

Stars burn, and eventually die, but we can see their light for hundreds of years after they have gone.  They shine on.

This is the legacy David Bowie has left us as well.

No matter what your taste in music, as an artist, you have to admire David Bowie as one of the all time great artists, in many mediums.  He was theatrical, musical and actor as well.  He was a rebel, a fashion icon, and she shone like the star he was, from early on.

We here at LMAJ have decided to do a blog hop to honor his memory, to honor his boldness, and to honor his art.

It is pretty open to interpretation.  You can make a piece based on one of his songs- interpreting it to jewelry.  You can use just one line of a song if you wish.  

Here is a link to some of his top songs

You can make a piece based on a picture of him, something, anything that inspires you.

Whatever you decide, may it be wild, and full of heart, and passion and boldness, just like he was.  He was our rebel, our star man, and he will shine for years and years.

To participate, please create a piece of jewelry, and blog about your inspiration, your piece, and /or any techniques you want to share.
In your blog, make sure to link to ours so anyone reading your blog can hop along as well.

  On March 10th we will have the blog hop.  You will be able to link your blog here on LMAJ that day.  We encourage that if you participate, to please hop along.  Leave comments on the other blogs, meet new designers and network.  Blog hops are not only fun for the creative challenge, but it is a great chance to expand your creative network.  I have met many creative friends through blog hops and challenges.

So we hope you will join us and honor this great artist memory through creating.  I think he would have liked that very much.

This looks like sooo much fun! His voice was so deep and melodious, how could you not be mesmerized by his songs? I loved him for his artistic genius, what a class act! My studio playlist has been set to Bowie songs over the past couple of weeks. I look forward to playing along with the blog hop!
