Art Bead Scene Entry July 09

This month's Art Bead Scene Contest is inspired by the cave paintings at Lascaux. I must say, this was a struggle for me... I've never really thought of cave paintings as art; A way to communicate - yes...but art -no!


But after giving it some thought I knew a silvered ivory background would work. I sat down at the torch with no other plan than that and made the central body bead and the four spacers used on the arms and legs. I woke up the next day, having dreamed about my little stick figure drawing and suddenly knew what direction my finished piece would take... but first, I had to make his head!


About the beads: layer of .999 pure silver added to ivory glass. The central body bead has a universal circular symbol on one side and a stick figure man on the other. All beads were wire wrapped with 18 & 20 gauge sterling.
