#FindingFashionJLG was the title for the series and lemme tell ya- I FOUND the fashion! I actually thing I may be reexamining any jewelry piece that I put on myself in the future thinking about how it could be turned into a shoulder detail or ruffle on a gown!
While I was working on the series I had folks asking about purchasing the works...but the only problem is that the works were all 'temporary', something totally different that how I usually work. I decided to make a small group of five pieces that I would make available for purchase. These are jewelry bits and pieces glued to 8x10 canvas boards;
I realized that I still had one more piece to make- so I decided for the final piece I would make one piece for myself to commemorate this series and also to pay homage to the lady that started my love for bling- my granny. The dress is covered with some of the vintage brooches that she gave me, and there is a gauzy black bag under them with little starts inside that actually more around when you shake the piece.
I feel like this format could be a good way to revisit the series later, or to make some pieces in the future to sell.
But for not now, MANY things going on...more details to come!
...just a gal trying to get this art out of my soul to share with the world on a DAILY basis...no big deal...check out my ramblings!-JLG
