Trip to the Art Museum

As an artist, I need new stimulation all the time.  A trip to the museum was just what the doctor ordered.  Isn’t this gorgeous? Whew! From the late 19th to early 20th century, this would have been worn by a bride in the Indonesian islands.  Pure gold.  A little heavy, huh?  The little chains would have tinkled as she moved.  I’m entranced by the detail they worked into the metal.  Personally, I would’ve worn it.  Shouldn’t we start a new tradition? (From the MFAH permanent collection) Next time I work in metal, I’m going to use this as inspiration!

Oh my goodness, it is SO lovely!
