"Eye Flower" Necklace

This is another of the designs I took to the recent art show:


"Eye Flower"

The cabochon used in this piece is very unique: it's a glass fish eye. I was infatuated with the beaded design work of Laura McCabe at the time when I designed it. Laura is a fantastically talented lady who uses unusual and sometimes unsettling materials in her designs. She is particularly well known for her use of doll's eyes in her jewelry and beaded sculpture. I have to admit that using human-looking doll eyes would be a bit much for me to stomach, but I do like the effect of various animal eyes, which I'm not as bothered by.
