Perfect Pairings :: Staci Louise Smith

Seriously?! What is not to love about this design by StaciLouise Smith? The hand carved thorns, the polymer clay hummingbird skull, the lush chartreuse silk with the worn and frayed edges, the woven beads, the tangles of wire (I especially like the little tangle on the end of the chain).... this necklace epitomizes the deep angst, the fiery passion and the thrilling vibrancy of the artist Frida Kahlo. I also think that Miss Frida would have worn this necklace in a heartbeat. 

Featured Designer + Bead Artist :: StaciLouise Smith


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 April 28th!

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.

I haven't done macrame in a while. I wonder if it's like riding a bicycle. I'd love to have the double bracelet.
