Earrings Everyday has a monthly earring challenge that I occasionally participate in…
love that it’s a quick turn around time, so if I decide to jump in on a particular month,
then I need to follow through quickly.
This month’s inspiration was just too cool and out there for me to pass up…
a student short film from Gobelins, l’ecole de l’Image,in Paris.
This 3 plus minute wonder struck the creative nerve of Erin Prais-Hintz who took charge of
November’s We’re All Ears Challenge.
Kudos, Erin, for sharing this with us. Loved it!
I was struck by the gorgeous imagery of mist and water…
the transformational power of the water in that other-worldly creature.
My earrings are made from 18 gauge sterling silver wire,
formed into beautiful swirls…dripping with opalite droplets.
And just to show how lovely these are on…
(Thank you, dear Tay, for being my model for this shot )
A side note: I looked up the meaning of the film’s title, Nebula…I kind of had an idea, but not really.
A nebula (from Latin: “cloud”; pl. nebulae or nebulæ, with ligature, or nebulas) is an interstellar cloud of dust, hydrogen, helium and other ionized gases. Originally, nebula was a name for any diffuse astronomical object, including galaxies beyond the Milky Way.
So, I went back and watched this little wonder again with a new appreciation…
