Stardust: A David Bowie Blog Hop Tribute hosted by Love My Art Jewelry

I am a huge David Bowie fan. His passing literally broke my heart... I like so many other cried for the loss of such an incredible man, artist, actor, a star born , he wasn't just a legend he is legendary. His parting of this world left a huge void, I swear I felt the world weep.

David Bowie made such a profound impact on my life and the lives of so many. He taught the world to embrace our differences, to love who we are, to never be afraid to shine like the unique star that we were born to be.

His music, his lyrics, his riffs, his tremendous talent will always live on!!!

I can't say how much this blog hop means to me personally. I knew right away what I wanted to do, I visualized what David Bowie meant to me, when he truly made an impact on my life, and when he left this world to take his place amongst the stars.

I used translucent polymer clay and created an abstract pendant with two sides of David Bowie... Ziggy Stardust on the left of course.... I used acrylic paints and handpainted my design. I can not for the life of me draw let alone capture the true essence of David Bowie, so I summoned my inner ziggy stardust along with my inner Picasso and we'll the results are below. 
This was indeed a challenge because I've only very recently began playing with polymer clay in jewelry design, I'm still learning so much, and this was the perfect opportunity to push myself, and I'm so so freaking happy with the results and if David Bowie is looking down from his star I would hope that he would love it just as much I do!!!

  5. This is fantastic. I especially love that you felt unsure of your art and you did it anyway. You felt at the beginning of your 'claying' and pushed through anyway. And you captured Bowie's two sides so well. Wonderful results after all that birthing!
