MORE BEZELS





This is what I have been working on for the past week, when time and strength allow, which is a tricky combination. I am pretty pleased with them. The top pic are are all images from my towers class, handmade bezels, solder, rivets, and ice resin. The last pic are bezels from Objects and Elements, the center one is one of my collages, the end ones are purchased images.
The question now is how to hang them. Do I use the beautiful sari silk and keep it simple , or do I make handmade chains, and really go all out. I'll have to think about this, but I would appreciate any input or thoughts.
Thanks for all your well wishes, and for visiting and sharing your comments and time.....I appreciate that immensely!

Love, love, love your focals!
Well, both simple or all out would work. But as they are really mixed media pieces, I think a combination of sari silk and bead/wire work would be gorgeous.

They are gorgeous! Maybe silk ribbons to hang them... but your chains are also so cool that what if you try both...!?

just beautiful sharon. The top 3 bezels seem more ornate and heavier so a chain might suit them best. But there's no reason you could not weave some sari silk through it for color and texture! The smaller bottom 3 bezels might be very lovely hanging on just the silk or a lighter chain. Why don't you "audition" both and see what your eyes and your heart tell you? xoxoxoxoxoxo
i love them!

Sharon...they are stunning. I can see why you've been soo busy lately!! I'm wondering about maybe blending two colors of the silks on each? Whatever you decide I'm sure will look wonderful.

Just beautiful, Sharon. I am amazed that you created all of these in one week! You sure know how to funnel that creative energy in what little time you have in the evenings. :-)

Bezels is a new word for me! lol. Love their shape, just perfect for what you have done with them.

Thankyou for your lovely comments on my blog:)

Lorraine @ creativedaily said...

These turned out beautiful Sharon - you must be so pleased! I LOVE them. I like the idea of both the sari ribbon and the chain so why not do some of each! You know me, variety!

mairedodd said...

these are so beautiful that to merely hang them on silk would be fine - but to do more would be splendid! including fibers of course...
