evolution of a design
I like the piece, but, for a jury shot, I thought maybe I had moved too much in the direction of repetition. I wanted a piece that was controlled, but
not quite so predictable. Also, although I had color, still it had a lot of browns and neutrals. I decided I wanted to make 3 changes: more color, copper tube pieces that were octahedra like the ones in the first piece, but irregular octahedra, and more interesting shapes than the ovoid ones in the first
The second pic shows me playing around with shapes till I got one I liked, sort of a fat crescent. Incorporating the other changes gave me more the sort of piece I was looking for, controlled, but just s bit unpredictable. I still have to work on getting a better picture of the new necklace--it's really brighter than this pic makes it appear.
