Drawing challenge: HAND



Nach Aristoteles hat jede Handlung 
einen Anfang, eine Mitte und ein Ende. 
Genauso also, wie die manuelle (manus, lat. = hand), handwerkliche 
Herstellung eines Perlenringes: 

Aristotle thinks each 'Hand-lung' (german for 'story telling'. It describes a course of events.) has got an beginning, a midst and an end. Ditto as the handcrafted manufacture (manus, lat. = hand) from a ring of pearls:


Am Anfang ist die Idee. 
Meistens ist es eine besondere Farbe von einem Perlring, die zu einem Kleid oder zu Schuhen oder zu einer Tasche passen soll. 

In the beginning is the idea. 
Mostly it is a specific colour from a ring of pearls that shall fits to a dress or shoes or a hand-bag.



Manchmal erscheint einem die Handlung etwas sprunghaft... 

Sometimes the storyline appears a little bit erratic...


... und manchmal langsam... 

... and sometimes slowly...


... dann lass ich mich ablenken... 

... than I'm open for take my mind off things...


... aber zum Glück finde ich zur Mitte zurück und verbinde weiter... 

...but blessedly I find back to the center and connect on...




... Perle an Perle bis zum Ende. 

... pearl by pearl to the End.


Meistens habe ich dann schon wieder eine Idee für einen neuen Ring! 

Most often I've got again an idea for a new ring!


This weekly drawing challenge is hosted by busy Nadine.  Come on over to her place to shake a lot of HANDs! Very inspiring theme, can't stop me...

  1. Wow! What a beautiful ring. I loved watching how you (sort of) made it! It's stunning and matches your nailpolish.

    There was a picture on Pinterest yesterday of a old person's hand reaching out to touch the fingers of a little child's hand. It was beautiful. Hands and fingers are part of what makes us human really.

    That's enough waffling from me, Ariane!

    Dear Elisabeth,

  11. Not only was it amazing to see the process in which yo made this gorgeous ring! But the colors! Those beads clustered look like a ripe raspberry and the nail polish like juice from that berry. that bountiful berry color and the peony! A favorite next to the tulip...This all makes for delicious eye candy.
