Mixed Media in visual arts refers to artwork in the making in which more than one medium has been employed. Although I love working with my tiny seed beads and weaving them together, I would also love to explore creating mixed media jewelry. Here are a few awesome examples, created by Caroline Fung who's work I so totally admire.
She does beading, wirework, metal clay, polymer clay, enameling, lampwork, silversmithing, digital collage, and that is just a short list. Here is a link to her blog, which is truly a feast for the eyes.
So now it's time to let you in on my little secret. But promise not to tell anyone, o.k.? So, here it is, I have a secret crush on Mondo! So if you watch Project Runway at all, of course you know that Mondo is a master of mixing materials and pattern on the runway. Besides loving his designs, I also find him to be an extremely likable person and he dresses with such personality, and is so well presented all the time. Oh well, too bad I have more than a few years on him and I get the feeling I am not his type at all ;) Anyhow, here are a some examples of his talent for mixing it up on the runway.
So there you have it: mixed media jewelry, The mixed up designs of Mondo, and oh yeah here's an added bonus: My fave mixed drink, a frozen Mudslide. Get the recipe here http://thisbottleofvodka.tumblr.com/post/3086664755/completelybackasswards-frozen-mudslide-recipe
