This week's Wearable Art Market featured artisan is the jadedog .

I've always loved intricate traditional beadwork and durn near ruined my eyes many years ago when I practiced this exacting art. I just love how Darcy has added a completely modern twist to her beading, creating a true wearable art feast for the eyes.

One part of great artwork is choosing just the right names and boy, do I love these two!

First we have Elephant Tracks which is the piece I was most attracted to when I first saw Darcy's work. I love all things African, especially love elephants and this title alone took me off on a flight of fancy (but oooh, did you see the lovely details?)

Next we have It Began With Ann's Expression Now, I have no idea who Ann is or what her expression was (shock, dismay, astonishment?) but geez, sure was fun making up a story that might fit. Once again the details draw you in...the beading is technically perfect and has a wonderful rhythm in the placement.

I hope you enjoyed this week's feature and please be sure to visit both Darcy's shop and the Wearable Arts Market for more luscious art!
