the eye, one of the most beautiful subjects i love to work with, has never failed to amaze me in many different ways. perhaps it’s simply the varieties of shapes and the colors they come in; or the symbolic meaning behind; the sight and the insight; but most of all, the connection to the mind. have you ever noticed someone who wears the most fabulous eye make up with the classiest long eyelashes and the perfect amount of glitter, who happens to have the emptiest out-of-focus stare? one that also wears a cheerful smile that disconnects with what is shown in the eyes? and how about a pair of tired winkled eyes with dark circle as black as the pandas’, that somehow shows a beautiful spark? don’t even get me started with the 15 millions different kinds of tears. i am fascinated by that subtle but unmistakable truth that comes through the eyes. Window to the soul, a well-earned title.
so this time, extending the fun of my metal gems series, http://mylifemylogic.bigcartel.com/category/metal-gems, i’m bringing the eye on for a new twist! here is the step-by-step making of for one of my metal gem eye necklaces.
hope you enjoy the blinky blings!
