Tigertail in circles

bishoff_tiger_tail

Bonnie Bishoff coiled loops of tigertail (nylon coated wire) and embedded part of each coil in striped half-circles of polymer to make this light, bouncy necklace. It can be doubled into a short curly version.

Assembling it must have been tricky since the necklace would have to be constructed first and then baked. The wire adds to the graphic quality of the design. There’s another example on Bonnie’s Pinterest site.

This was Bonnie’s response to one of the Creators Art Challenges that’s traveling around online. See more of her challenge creations on Facebook and follow Bonnie on her site.

    Bonnie and JM’s new work is as fresh and pretty as a day in Spring! There’s a buoyancy which gives you the feeling it was created by much younger designers. And the use of line is outstanding. This is a wonderful evolution in the work of these accomplished artists. You go guys!!!
