Finding Your Voice Workshop – Week 5 – From a Song

Hungry Eyes – here’s lookin’ at you!  The assignment for this week of the workshop (Finding Your Voice –Sylvie Lansdowne on Facebook) was to choose any song and make a bead the was inspired by this song.  I had a difficult time choosing a song!

In the end, I chose “Hungry Eyes” sung by Eric Carmen; it was in the movie Dirty Dancing.  This song is neither my favorite, nor does it have any special meaning to me.  However, when I was explaining the assignment to my husband in Steak ‘n Shake, this song started plaing on their XM radio.  Hmm, I had a comment about my prior bead that it looked almost like eyes.  There it was; I had a song. As a total aside, I discovered that this song was recorded in Beachwood, Ohio – not too terribly far from where I live!

I can see where I can make improvements to this bead, but the rules of the workshop are quite explicit – make one bead, and that is the one to post.  You can make more, but the first one is the workshop bead.

Now that I made the bead, it brought back a memory.  When I was young, there was a drive in restaurant called the Hungry I in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio.  I loved going there!  They had a signature burger – the “I”.  It was a lot like a Big Mac, but it predated that sandwich by at least a decade, and was much juicier.  It was delivered hot and juicy to your car in a paper wrapper with an olive on a toothpick skewered into the burger.  Maybe I can start a “Tribute to the Hungry I” series.
