~Hieronymus Bosch

Hieronymus Bosch c. 1450 – 9 August 1516 was an Early Netherlandish painter. His work is known for its fantastic imagery, detailed landscapes, and illustrations of religious concepts and narratives. Within his lifetime his work was collected in the Netherlands, Austria, and Spain, and widely copied, especially his macabre and nightmarish depictions of hell.~Adapted from Wikipedia.

~Stardust: A David Bowie Tribute Blog Hop

I was inspired by this pic of Bowie for this blog hop. 
Recycled copper enameled with EXIT since he did, didn't he? 
All shiny bright in the sky now.
Here's how it came about:
I started with recycled copper flashing
 Cut it all wonky and pounded it. Washed it up after that.
 I counter enameled it in translucent blue.
 Made a stencil and torch enameled the front in black and white.
I then added my own chain of vintage glass beads and accents with strands of crystals cascading from reclaimed silver toned chain.
Hangs just above the belly button. Very chic.
