New Work

I’m excited about this piece.  It’s my first attempt using stringing and bead embroidery together in a non-jewelry piece.  The idea has been swirling in my head for months, now that I see I like I it want to do a few more.  I’m not tired of the mandalas, but it's time to start branching out.  

I made this piece specifically to be displayed at a small local art exhibit.  It's not meant to go on the wall, it's free standing.

It’s about the moment in time when a burden has been lifted from your shoulders, and how good that feels. 

I don’t have a title for it yet, any suggestions?


  1. Oh my god Liz! That's AMAZING!!!!!!!!!! If you don't win a ribbon for this at the art show I'll be shocked.

  2. Fabulous, I love it!

    Evokes a sense of freedom or flying were the words that sprung to mind when I looked at.

    I like this direction you're going in!

  3. A successful mind to matter piece. You really captured the human form in flight and the suspension is masterful. Beautiful presentation with the stand. A winner in every way.

    Also, wanted to touch base with you about the AtoZ April Challenge. I remember that was where we first met last year. I am a minion/helper this year and am spreading the word about signing up. Links on my Sidebar.

  4. Good stuff. The minute I saw the piece it brought to mind Steve Winwood's album Arc of a Diver, which contained the great single While You See A Chance. The diver on the album cover bends a different way to your figure, but it's all good. Impressed, as ever.

  5. LOVE, love, love this Liz!!!! so very original and stunning and thought provoking ... per usual! For me what came to mind ... the world is your oyster, and life your ocean

  6. I don't think I have seen anything so beautiful.
    What a mind you have for creating art that makes people Feel and Think.
    This is masterpiece...simple and complex all at the same time.
    I just don't know what to say. I am the best of ways :-)

  7. Gorgeous Liz, I love the how the figure is suspended in mid air and of course the bling factor. Jubilation comes to mind a feeling of accomplishment and easy excitement.

  8. This is so different! I have never seen beading done like this and I love it!! So well done and how you attached everything together..not sure how but it is amazing. You took a leap(:)) and it works so well

  9. AWESOME!!! That's the only word I have for this. Brava!!! Love it!!
