It’s time for another Style Imitating Art (SIA) challenge! It’s Erin’s turn to curate, and she chose a stunner, a glass beadwork art piece, “My Sea, My Sister, My Tears,” from the “Ubuhle Women: Beadwork and the Art of Independence” exhibit. Since the U.S. is celebrating Independence Day, Erin chose an artwork that also celebrated independence. These beadwork pieces are done by a community of women living and working together, and you can learn more about that by clicking here.
Here is a detail of the overall work, and click here to view the entire piece, which is beadwork done on black cloth.
There is a lot of texture here with the glass beads, and different shapes and colors. I can’t wait to see what y’all come up with!
How do you participate in SIA challenges? Bloggers and non-bloggers are welcome to participate, and all you need to do is take a picture — selfies and flat lays also count — of an outfit inspired by this week’s artwork. Then send the pic to this week’s curator, Erin from Loop Looks, at looplooks@gmail by next Monday, July 11. She’ll post the round-up on her blog soon after.
