With the piece that I have just created , my husband Tom saw a stringer of Neon tropical fish, I saw somethinhg else, as I knew what I had made the piece from.
ok , no more suspense! What is it this time, you ask. Now don't go and get exasperated, here it is. It is a necklace.
Can you see why Tom said tht it looks like s stringer full of Neon's? The bristles are the tails and the colorful coatings are the neon scales. The chain then becomes a stringer full of fish!
Actually it is a vintage chain loaded with the ends of paintbrushes that have been wrapped in my signature painted paper towel, coated with resis and drilled for jumprings to attatch to the chain. i have worn it several times and I notice people looking at it and I can see their minds working trying to figure it out!! One teacher at my daughter's school , who does wonderful colorful art with her kindergarteners, came right up to me, picked up the necklace and burst out , "Those are paintbrushes, that is just so cool!!" She gets it and when she doesn't, she is not shy about asking.
Here are a few close-ups.
It is all about perspective and perception!!
I think that I will be putting several of these pieces up on my new Etsy store, coming soon!! I will be posting a link here on my blog so you can all rush right on over and check it out!!! ( As I know that you all will want to do just that!!:) )
