The Challenge of an Art Challenge by Jeannette Froese LeBlanc
My cuff was mailed to artist Hayley Kruger in the U.K. who in turn cut out pieces of it and added to it using paper, crayons, pespex and ink.
A third artist, Lisa Welbourn made a necklace from the work of the first two artists. She added sterling silver, silver clay, lava beads, rubber neck cord. Lisa also decided to combine some of the elements to make them double sided.
A second piece I worked on was started by Joy Funnell. Can you imagine receiving a fine silver and enameled piece from Joy and you are to “change” it or work on it? Oh I was a bit scared! It was a beautiful piece!
