We are pleased to announce the First Prize in the Wearable Art category in the ENDANGERED Art & Photography Contest 2016. Congratulations to Tatiana Fitzpatrick for The Beauty in the Bees. All Rights Reserved.
The idea of this necklace is to accent the beauty of one of the most important animals to the Earth's entire planetary ecology - the bees; to catch people's attention to the problems they are facing in nowadays world.
Beads are an integral part of my life. I am interested in creating objects which can be artistically accented by beadwork. In the designs I use many techniques, both well-known and those which I invented myself. My favorite beads to work with are antique tiny beads sizes 18 to 26.Working with such small beads requires extraordinary patience and concentration, as well as plenty of time.
Fashion is transient, but feelings are eternal. My art represents my inner feelings. I believe art should display light and beauty, and appeal to the best sides of humanity, evoking positive emotions and encouraging spiritual growth and self-perfection.Every piece of my art is unique and made with love –to both God and mankind, in appreciation of the beauty surrounding.
