A piece of the Chicago Stock exchange...
I love the colors and lines on this stenciled piece of artwork. I could almost immediately visualize 5 designs from it. One being a pair of earrings with a marquise shaped center piece. I will probably be able to use the amazonite i recently purchased. It is quite similar to the green you see here.
Observe the layers on this piece of work that used to be part of the trading floors. The more i look at it the greater the urge to actualize a piece of 2....the increments of making it tangible and reflective of this piece of work.
circa. 1893. Executed by Healey and Millet, and designed by Louis Sullivan and Dankmar Adler.
