Beauty in the Negative

1″ x 1.5″, glass beads

After making a stained glass window for friends that used the negative space as an image, I’ve been looking for images in the space around things. It’s a visual exercise I haven’t done since elementary school, and it’s definitely a metaphor for how to look around the edges and behind all the negativity that’s at the forefront during the pandemic and the general state of the world. ┬áThis pendant is a play on carefully-carved white cameos, and is a reminder that what’s left alone is often the most beautiful.
