A year of creating daily artworks on the lids of Carmex lip balm containers. Various materials are used with an emphasis on mixed-media. Creations may feature: polymer clay, metal clays (Fine Silver, bronze and copper), SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS, resin, wire, pearls, paper, paint, glass, wood, coins, buttons, hardware, found and recycled objects.
A copper heart-within-a-heart charm appears to be bursting out of the lid. Layered polymer clay is cut into a torn, circular pattern that rests over the textured surface. The background is a translucent checkerboard millefiori pattern that continues along the rim in mismatched slices.
