The Joy of Bling

Can we ever get enough bling? I don’t think so. It’s what every girl or guy who makes art lives for. You will never use all the stuff you have, but isn’t it fun rifling through it?
Recently I made this collage incorporating a brass finding Mary gave me a while ago. I knew I wanted to put something in the middle of it and finally found the perfect tiny shell. The rest of the collage kind of evolved from there.
Then a few days ago Christmas came early when Mary sent me a package of her special bling (below). I don’t know how she manages to track down such nifty stuff, but I do know I’d much rather be playing with all those tantalizing bits and pieces than trying to handle the tasks on my endless to do list.

Inspiring! I think I will go dig out my little jar of findings to see what I "find." What a wonderful gift!

Boy, it sure looks a lot better in a picture then when I was picking the stuff out. Can't wait to see what you do with them.

Hip hop today is an incredible force upon American youth and even
beyond on a global level. Hip hop and rap have created entirely new industries
such as the hip hop jewelry genre,
upgraded the look of the common drinking cup to the majestic looking
pimp cups, have virtually
created a new and expanding language, and have even affected the
automotive industry with such bold customizations as large spinning bling bling wheels and
transformed fashion and clothing in an unprecedented way and so much more. Hip hop is no doubt way more influential and powerful than rock and roll.
