Perfect Pairings :: Dawn of LaTouchables + Something To Do Beads + Mudrenko + Balelaceramics

There is a certain peaceful simplicity in everything that Miss Dawn of LaTouchables makes. I always stand in awe. I aspire to have this level of confidence in my own voice. Her pieces always sing, and the song seems to come from a deeper place, one that is ancient and timeless and mystical. I am fascinated with the way she plays with fibers, old pieces of fabric, rough pieces of raffia, tiny stitched embellishments and a hand-crocheted cord to tie it all together. The colors are at once muted and yet vibrant in their juxtaposition. She chooses her beads wisely with an eye of a curator. I love that she chose NOT to make this a literal interpretation. There isn't a shell to be found in here. Yet, it embodies shamanistic qualities that feel as ancient as the sea with a wisdom of the ages in that tiny pouch.

Just a friendly reminder... We have a slightly new format for uploading your pictures for consideration for the Perfect Pairings each Wednesday, as well as the Monthly Challenge Recap post. 


We are now using Pinterest! You can find more details in this post about the exciting new changes, including a board devoted to art beads inspired by the monthly challenge!
(Ooh! Look! More pretty beads to lust after!)


Pretty please make sure that you post a link in your Pinterest description so that I have someplace to attribute the picture to! And don't forget to tell us about those art beads!
 

Deadline to get your pictures posted to the Pinterest boards for the creation of the
Monthly Challenge Recap post is July 29th

TIP: If you upload your photo to pin it rather than pin it from your blog or shop, edit the pin (the little pencil button) and add your link as the source. Save your edits. This will allow us to click directly on your photo and go to your blog or shop to read more about your entry.

Thank you for your kind words, Erin. It's always such a pleasure to participate in these monthly challenges. I enjoy seeing what others come up with. Having the chance to channel someone else's choice of visual beauty in two-dimensional form is so fun. Thank you, too, Ann.

What a wonderful follow up on "Miss Dawn", I like the attributed "Miss", she truly is very lady like in all her social behavior, and so very eloquent and good mannered in her expressions at her blog posts. Her art is beautiful and unique, coming from deep insider her. She is always faithful to herself in all her creations, a very fine artist indeed she is.
