365 Talking Heads - a year long project that became a creative meditation; unleashing unique words of wisdom from every head that was made. Today, the “talking heads” have become beaded magnetic brooches. Embroidered with glass beads and semi-precious stones, each face has a name and carries a specific energy. Whether worn on a lapel or hung on the wall in its shadow-box frame, it speaks its' truth to all who care to listen. Beaded faces can be seen at sueellenkatz.com
I've been working on a series of pins all representing the animals of the Chinese New Year. Each face has the hoof, hand, paw or foot print of that particular animal. This one happens to be the year of the OX.
