This brings me to the bet Dave and I made with each other. I was playing with my clay layered stack and decided to formulate some type of scene. When I showed Dave my pendant, I asked him what he saw and at first he didn't see anything -- go figure! I then gave him some suggestions as to what I saw (which I had some liberty as I did make the piece - ha). I showed him the sky, the hill, the possible water at the bottom --- He did see the sun! yippee! On the other hand he did decide it was a sunset over a moonscape --- he felt calling it a landscape was stretching it a bit.
We then made a bet. I said I would post a photo of it on our blog and ask our followers what they see and compare who is right ---
To settle the bet ... any of the comments that mentioned desert, sun, etc. were a point for Dave.
Any of the comments that referred to scenes or landscapes were a point for me.
We eliminated the faces, fish, birds and whatever -- except for the FraggleRock comment. Dave insisted on a point for that one! (In his opinion FraggleRock was the best TV show ever made)
As for the comments on Facebook? Well -- let's just say they are just wierd! Ninja turtles??? lol!
All in all we settled on a tie -- (for now...) It was fun though to see how so many people can look at the same thing and all get a totally different impression!
So now the inspiration behind this piece....
I bought this gorgeous wrap style poncho shawl from a local artist friend, Jan Seedhouse. Her work is fabulous and all made by her on her loom. You can see the shawl in our blog post here.
So, I've been wanting to make some new jewelry pieces to go with my shawl. I created some new bargello (which I will show you later) and decided to play around with some of the same colors. Here are some photos of the pendant piece with my shawl to see how the colors coordinate.
Thanks again for all your comments! We had a lot of fun reading them!
