...modified Chic and Uniques...
...just the right amount of baroque...
These are just a few of the new stuff going to KL this weekend.
The smaller hoops are simpler, sleeker versions of the original Klimts. The usual Klimts have a more bohemian effect from the handforged swirl, and a more grandiose mien with a bigger, elongated hoop. I have made quite a few of these "mini Klimts", in a variety of colours and colour combos, along with matching wire-wrapped rings. So good for everyday.
The modified Chic and Uniques turned out pretty cool. Very young and fresh. So ready to take on the world...!
I really liked how the elliptical Klimts with floral beads turned out. I think it is such a nice touch seeing that Klimt also had so much inspiration from natural imagery. I also love the artisitc style of the floral graphic itself - so old-school, with filigree and tendrils about. I didn't want to put swirls in 'coz I think it'd look "too much".
The baroque-inspired ones are also very pretty with an "olde worlde" charm, but with a sleek and modern interpretation. I recently treated myself with a book on Baroque painters, and am currently being bowled over by Vermeer, Caravaggio, Velasquez and Brueghel the Elder. Seriously, their work make me wanna cry.
