Concentric Circles in Squares

I remember travelling to New York many years ago, visiting one of the art museums there, and seeing a Kandinsky “Concentric Circles in Squares” painting.  I was transfixed by the colours and movement in the painting.  I wanted to buy the painting!  I settled for a postcard.

Anyone who knows me, knows that I love dots and circles, so it’s probably no surprise that this painting became the inspiration behind a collection of jewellery that I started making.  My Kandinsky collection.  I’ve made assorted earrings, necklaces and bracelets for many years now.  Here are some pictures of bracelets that I’ve made in various colours (thanks to Urban Cow for the photo):


However this year I was challenged to do something a little bit different for the T’Arts SALA exhibition, so I started playing with the idea a bit more, and created these beads which I will make into pendants.  I’m excited about the colours in the beads, and the interactions with the background colours, and I can’t wait to see where these new pendants go in terms of experimenting with the design.
