Look at how nicely they all play together as a necklace. Her textile-like sketchy patterns threaded on a red string turn any outfit into party attire.
Minnesota’s Jan Geisen considers herself an improv artist. The scraps interest her much more than neat and tidy patterns.
Here she jumps on the wire trend and a wire ring comes to the front and then the back of this unusual layered necklace with circles and rough edges. See all of her improvisations on Flickr.
There’s so much energy in this series from France’s Caroline Cornic Isola (Klick-Art) that it’s hard to know where to focus. Your eyes dance between shapes and colors and land intermittently on black and white bits.
Thin lines lead you between elements. When you dive in for a closer look you’ll see that the colors aren’t solid but mottled and graduated. Each pendant is a little Miro-like composition.
