Portals series: "Life Finds A Way" brooch/pendant/wall art
3.75" x 3.5" 2018
"Life Finds A Way" is a look at our long history of life on this planet, both in the natural and the human history. Fossils bridge the gap from the now to the then, and trade beads and pearls hint at how we humans use nature and science to enrich our lives." Mixed media mosaics really interest me, and this "Portals" series is an exploration in colors, textures and coherence. Each represents a portal to a world of imaginary delights. Step through.Straight pin on the back with a bail, so it can be worn as a brooch or strung and worn as a necklace. Be aware that it has a little weight to it, so if you wear it as a brooch, a heavier fabric would be more appropriate.Oh, and it would also make a lovely small wall piece. Just sayin'.
