Wearable Art

This week's Grungy Monday Challenge over at Studio L3 is Tim Holtz Wearable Art!  I've never actually made wearable art before, so this was an adventure for me.  I've often looked at some of the wonderful things other folks do and thought about trying it - well here's my opportunity! 

My piece is pretty simple - I've had these beads and wire around for a while (dreaming that someday they would magically turn into something for me).  I created a faux-etching on one of Tim's facets, backed it with paper colored with alcohol inks and strung them on the wire.  I like it and I'm excited to wear it! (that's the best part)

Thanks for looking!
