Art of the Day: "Eye Witness" Cuff by Megan Petersen

 Buy this cuff here

 Megan Petersen's Etsy shop, MegansBeadedDesigns, is full of her beautifully handmade beaded jewelry. As I perusing through, though, I found this piece that I would highly consider wearable art. You can decide where the line should be drawn between jewelry and wearable art, but I personally found this piece a prime example of wearable art (as well as super evocative). Megan sent me a few words about herself and this crazy cool piece that she wanted to share with everyone...  
About the Piece
"I created this piece for a beading challenge last June with the theme "Mystery." Being a lover of all things terrifying, I took the graphic approach with my piece. I wanted to capture the horror of seeing something that cannot be unseen. I surrounded the glass eye cabochon (which I designed in Photoshop) with red toho seed beads to represent blood being spilled from a crime no one was supposed to witness."  
About Megan:
 "I am a graphic designer by day, and creator of beaded jewelry and accessories by every other time in-between. I love creating and designing unique pieces that help the wearer make a statement about herself. All of my beadwork is done completely by hand, one tiny bead at a time. You can learn more about me and explore my work at

P.S~ Yes, I just was imagining myself wearing this to a showing of The Hobbit
purely to freak people out. Smog is kindof cool after all, right? Who's with me?
