Okay – this is is a perfect example of why you should spend time reading other people’s blogs. Yesterday, I shared a blog entry from a blogger known as The Cerebral Dilettante. I took my own suggestion and spent some time really looking at her pieces up close.
I noticed how she wrapped wire around only a portion of a copper washer to add an accent and how she connected her silk cords. I also noticed that she also had a top drilled round bead that she had difficulty deciding how to use.
I had a similar bead in silver on my bench waiting to be part of this months recycling challenge. I used a few of the “Dilettante’s” ideas (simplified quite a bit since my focal pieces was much smaller) and reworked my piece.
I think the resulting piece is much better than my original. What do you think?
