Beaded Sculptures

The only one out of the bunch that I like is the flower. I beaded these with the intent of a three dimensional collage. I like the organic shapes, but was not able to tie them together aesthetically.
Maybe if I could figure out an organic looking stand to display them on it would help. In the meantime, I have switched color range and beaded a couple of smaller sculpted forms.
I like these. I don't know why, maybe the colors or the lighter feel to them.
They are small enough to nestle in between other pieces or place vertically.
I'll get it figured out. I want a base sculpture that has a necklace, bracelet and brooch as part of the sculpture. A piece that I can rearrange when I'm bored with it. It's fun to brainstorm. You just never know where it is going to take you. And it's liberating to just bead a form without any pattern or plan in mind. A fun exercise in tolerating controlled chaos.
