Eye've Been Framed!

"Ol' Blue Eye" is framed, lit, and now officially my favorite thing. The LED lighting makes the blue eye look like it glows. The Eye is suspended on a single wire in an open shadow box for a 3-D mounting. The battery-powered LED light has 2 brightness settings, which I've found to be especially nice. No matter where I move, it's looking at me.

  1. Amazing!! Really amazing work. I've never tried an inlay before and am anxious to give it a go at some point.

  2. Thank you! If you are interested in doing an inlay, it is *definitely* worth the time and effort. I can't wait to start on my next one. I already have a frame and light ready to go. :)

  3. This is amazing! I would have no clue how to even start to put something like this together! Is it sort of silky feeling? I know when you weave beads a certain way, the finished piece is sort of silky feeling.
    I am in awe!

  4. Thanks! It is reeeeally silky. That's why I didn't want to put it behind glass. I love touching and poking it and seeing how the light looks on the metal when it moves. It makes me think how cool chainmaille curtains would be--heavy, but cool.
