Art Bead Scene blog for a few months now. I have been intrigued with art beads for some time. For years I have experimented with various beads, mostly ones that are faux semi precious stones or just your average stone that is carved. I wasn't sure if I could deviate from that but decided to give a try to this challenge. As a former quilter one of my favorite designs was the square within a square and I made many variations on this theme, so I figured, why not in clay? It wasn't as simple as it seemed. I tried a few ideas, trying to take the whole painting and make individual tile beads but I didn't like how that was going. That is when I decided to put my own spin on it and make his circles my squares and his squares my circles. I think it turned out fairly well, although different than my usual pursuits that is why I decided to enter in the first place! :) Let me know what you think and give a visit to Art Bead Scene and read about the challenge, its a very cool blog!
