Our theme for August is “CONCEPTS” and the entries for this week’s design challenge were inspired by the theme of “COMMUNICATION”. Anything that gives the impression of communication. Reading, telephones, storytelling, Braille, sign-language, speaking, writing, symbols, body language, signs, etc. 

Jo Pound of Jewelry by Jolane
I chose to do a bead embroidery bracelet that I made into a watch. To me a watch can be a form of communication, conveying time. 

Sherri Jones of SenoJ Designs
The Traffic Light communicates with us twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, without saying a word. I enjoy making conversational pieces and this one doesn't fall short. 

Tammy Adams of Paisley Lizard
I chose to design with symbols that may communicate mixed messages depending on the culture, age, experiences, etc. of the person viewing them. Even colors communicate meanings. 

Mary E. Mallia of Jewels for Scheherazade 

Laura Bracken of Bracken Designs Studio Art Jewelry
For my communication piece, I decided to go way back to one of the earlier forms of communication… petroglyphs. I designed and created these double-sided earrings by firing layers of enamel onto copper disks and implementing the sgraffito technique.
