RAW #26

another ocd dots, tried to incorporate the rivets into the dot arrangement this time. added a simple granulated, then distressed, rectangle to the design, as well. ironically, i never wear these colors, but it is one of my favorite rings for color :)

RAW #25

finally, getting back on track! i've finished up to #27, which i'll post over the next couple of days. this one is another ocd dots ring with a window on a recycled gift card. it's a little on the large side, but fun and comfortable to wear.
an online friend recently asked about my method and the ocd dots in particular. i had to clarify, i don't actually have ocd, but feel like i must on some level when i make these dot pieces! in reality, these pieces are really relaxing to make. the loose design of the painting is very freeing and i love making them! hence, my inability to let them go :) when designing a piece, i usually start with either a gift card and take my color palette from there or a color palette and add other elements after the fact. the possibilities are endless.
more soon! have a great day!

RAW #23 & #24...finally!

RAW #23

i am soooooo behind on my RAWs, ugh. shouldn't i have MORE time to work in the summer? have managed to crank out a few though. this one uses the ocd dots, a recycled gift card and a sterling silver flower.
RAW #24

this is another ocd dots and again, it's huge! i think this one may even be bigger than the 'gauntlet' i did way back on #4 or so. this one has a lovely ceramic house riveted to it. i didn't plan it, but love how the dots have taken on a landscape feel.
have a great week!
