Swirls

This month’s theme for Art Elements is Swirls!
Check out the Art Elements site for details about the challenge. 

I pulled all my swirly artisan beads out to admire while I decided what to make.  The pieces from my stash are: Andrew Thornton’s copper color polymer clay pendant, Heather Boardman’s two glass odisks, Cynthia Thornton’s metal snake pendant, Sally Sutherland’s etched glass-work tube bead, and the paisley donut bead with the metal swirl hanger is from Priscilla Maraben. The black and white heart bead and the star pendant are from De-stashes and I don’t know the artist. If anyone recognizes them, let me know!

I chose to work with Soul Silver’s etched glass tube bead and HMB’s glass disk. The swirls are so beautifuly subtle in the tube bead, and the swirl is so visible in the disk and I loved that contrast. Looking through my stash, I found this mermaid key from Green Girl, and realized it had ocean waves on it, which are the King Of Swirls! 

This is a blog hop!! Please take a tour of everyone else’s swirl designs for this month!
