Be Inspired - Circular Sensation

Circles (my very favorite shape) are a recurring theme in my work. I love the circular shape of many of my pendants and magnets, as well as pressing little circles into them to create fun texture. Something about a circle seems so perfect and complete to me. I started to make a flickr mosaic when I ran across this great one by nofrills. I know I was inspired, so I decided it would be perfect for this feature today, plus I have orders to get out and I haven't had time to finish my own. I already have a few ideas started after looking at this wonderful circular spread.


Here are some examples of artists who have taken the simple notion of a circle, and created something fantastic:















Are you getting inspired yet? Here's more:











I know you're getting inspired now. So many circles, so little room on my blog! To see the artist or purchase one of these items, just click on the pictures to be taken to their etsy shop.




More circular sensations:











Well if these images haven't inspired you today, you may just need to step away from the art supplies and have your head examined or at least go blow some bubbles! Take a little time this week to explore the circle and create your own circular sensation. Remember, if you are inspired to create something from one of the Be Inspired features, please send a picture and description to my e-mail, blockpartypress@yahoo.com and I may feature you on my blog. The piece must be inspired by the Be Inspired post and cannot be an item created prior to the posting. If your Be Inspired piece is featured, I will send you a free pendant from my etsy shop (I will choose the pendant and it will be a surprise).
