Anarina Anar puts raw energy into her rough and vibrant pieces. You can feel the Greek sun and the heat in the colors.Texture and dimension add a tactile quality to the pattern on her striped bracelet.
Anarina also shows a hemisphere necklace on her Flickr page. I thought readers might mutiny at the sight of another one of these designs that have captivated me so you can see it here if you’re a fan of the trend.
Love the colors, love the swirls.
But I see no hemispheres. A hemisphere is half a sphere…half a ball. Not a slice of a cylinder.
Oh right…it doesn’t really qualify, does it?
I really like how the end of snake of clay became a loop for those earrings. Nice design!
Marlene Brady ,
I did a disk necklace in plain white and called it “Oversized Heishi”. I thought Heishi meant how the beads were sliced. Well, I had a reader write to say Heishi meant “shell” and my polymer did not look like shell. I did change the name just because I didn’t want my necklace to look like a bad imitation of shell. But, I can relate to how a word’s definition is different than its interpretation.
Anarina’s work is lovely. I love her colors and I, too, like the end loop on the earrings. Clever.
I love Anarina’s necklace. I like to see many variations on a theme. Something about that really beaks open my mind and allows the possibility of new ideas.
Is this painted pc or is it really lots of mixed colors? I looked at the Facebook and it looked half and half. I really like it.
When I clicked on the final link, I had to laugh. You don’t have to apologize for being attracted to disk beads. And if it is a trend, then you’re keeping us up to date, as always.
I really like it too. The colors are wonderful. I agree, the loop idea is a good one. I never thought of that.
