This month Erin Prais-Hintz is inspired by a collaborative art exhibit that she is undertaking at a local co-op gallery. The theme of this exhibit will be called "Beauty in the Broken Places." In her search for inspiration she came upon a concert called "Wabi-Sabi." This concept is based on impermanence of beauty, that there is beauty in the broken, the rusty and old. “Pared down to its barest essence, wabi-sabi is the Japanese art of finding beauty in imperfection and profundity in nature, of accepting the natural cycle of growth, decay, and death. It’s simple, slow, and uncluttered – and it reveres authenticity above all.” NobleHabor.com

Below are some inspirational photos that Erin Features for this month's Pretty Palettes.
Here are my Bead Gallery® Beads
Bead Gallery® Pyrite stone nuggets
Bead Gallery® silver iris glass 6/0
Bead Gallery® metal gears
I used the Art C paint to create a patina look on the gear. E-6000 was used to attach the gear to the pyrite stone. Both the paint and the E-6000 dried super quick.
I love the Bead Gallery® gears - they are perfect for this challenge.
I hope you enjoyed my design for this month. For more daily inspiration please be sure to visit my instagram at Denise Yezbak Moore .
