Indelible Moments Show... Call for Artists

Have you seen this call for artists from the International Society of Glass Beadmakers?  It looks like a fun show.
And the theme, really makes me excited about it.  Creating wearable glass art that means something important to the artist.  

It makes me think about those "indelible moments" in my life.  Of course marriage, births, deaths, and so many other moments.

So how would you express one of your Indelible Moments?  I'd love to hear.

See you tomorrow....wwwl/

A Collection of Personal Narratives Expressed in Art Glass Beads
In everyone's lives are moments that stand out, moments that we remember more clearly than others. We can call these certain memories to mind as if they happened just yesterday, no matter how much time passes. What makes these moments unforgettable may vary greatly. Maybe it was doing something for the first time or for the last time. Perhaps it was an entirely commonplace occurrence but one day, that one day in particular, something different happened. These are the moments that become etched in our memory permanently. Sometimes, all it can take to transport us back to that moment is a smell, a word, or a sound, and we can play that memory over and over again in our mind's eye.
Reach back into your memory. Pluck out the details from one of your most memorable or special experiences. Take those sights and sounds and translate them into glass! Paint a picture of that memory using glass beads as your brushstrokes and jewelry as your canvas. Turn that special memory into a wearable work of art.
This is an opportunity for ISGB members to participate in a special exhibition that will open in conjunction with our twentieth anniversary Gathering in Bellevue/Seattle, Washington. Jewelry can include but is not limited to components such as seed beads, fine metal, PMC, fibers, etc. Multiple mediums are encouraged; however the main focus of your piece should be hand-crafted glass bead(s). Members may choose to work solo or with partners of their choice.
