We're All Ears :: September Inspiration

This month Erin really challenged us with this really cool Japanese video where they create stunning visual designs. Take a min and watch it. I have watched it several time and seen something new almost each time. 

ENRA’ is a visual dance performance troupe from Japan performing stunningly unique animation-based digital performances. The images used in the performances are not attuned to the dancers, but interactively staged in a way never imagined before. The members of ENRA are experts in genres including martial arts, gymnastics, ballet, animation, dance, juggling and street dance.

'Torque Starter' is a feast for the mind. Using stunning visual effects combined with the perfectly timed movement of a lone performer who is juggling a lighted ball, 'Torque Starter' is filled with a frenetic energy and a host of geometrical shapes and images. Because the video is completely in black and white, the shapes become the dancers, morphing into one another at every turn and transforming the blank 'canvas' of the screen into a living painting, or almost more like calligraphy, with the absence of any color. 

After watching it, I was not sure what to create, but what kept coming to mind were the circles and squares and jagged lines. So I had square and round wire finding and then made a zigzag, sort of, wire piece. I hung them all together on an earring loop. They are simple, and fun. I really like them, may keep them for myself!

For more earring eye candy head over to Erin's blog and check out what everyone made. 

Til next time...

Keep on Beading



  1. These are terrific! Full of lines and movement!

  2. These are great!! Love the combination of shapes and I bet they make a nice jingly sound when you move...very clever xx

  3. These earrings are beautiful! You did a great job to capture the inspirational video!

    Greetings, Sofie

  4. Great fun earrings, Vera. I love these and can imagine them swaying from the ears with every movement. Perfect!

  5. Fun play with geometric shapes! The kinetic movement in these earrings will be a treat when you wear them.

  6. Ooh these will jingle when worn. You pulled several of the geometric shapes together and used the silver to great advantage. Have fun wearing these

  7. Great fun, Miss Veralynne! I think those shapes were dancing on the screen and you captured that movement completely. A great way to play with wire and make that the star! Thank you for joining me in the We're All Ears challenge for September. Check back on October 2nd for the next inspiration! Enjoy the day! Erin
