Welcome Papa Francis

I was trying to figure out a good image for today - in celebration of Pope Francis. I was inspired to share a manly sorrowful chaplet in honor of Pope Francis's humbleness. Don't forget to celebrate our new Papa with pi - and if you gave up sweets for Lent... have chicken pot Pi!! Enjoy! Oh this piece is available.

What in a pod?

These earrings were an exercise of trial. The copper metal has been manipulated in several ways including corrugating in various directions. They are very light and 'secretive', in that the design invites you to peek inside or yearn to see what the pod holds. Guess you have to get your hands on them to find out! These earrings are available at Fatih@Work! Enjoy!

Carry the sunset with you

This arty necklace is hand sawed textured copper sheet metal. The stone I purchased a few years back while vacationing a cave site. I just loved the colors on the geo slice. I was inspired to make prongs for this piece to show more of the stone. My solution made both sides look different, yet wearable on either side of the carnelian slice. The textile combination compliments the stone beautifully. Great piece! This piece is available. Enjoy!

This makes me smile

I am so in love with this piece... the colors and the shapes. I hand sawed the metal and made box prongs. First time doing this and then filled with polymer to give it more color. I also used metal 'dots' for the back so it can be worn either way. I love the dangles and the color combination of the glass beads both top and bottom. The purple satin cord nicely pulled it together. This piece makes me happy! Enjoy!! This piece is available.

Want some Attention?

Good Monday Morning Everyone!! As many know, I love purple, and of course I couldn't pass up a purple geo slice! I loved the shapes in this stone and tried to saw the brass metal sheet to mimic the organic shape. I painted the hand textured brass metal to show up the hammering marks which compliments the purple stone. I also used rivets for the bail which is subtle since the prongs in this piece are cut metal tabs. I really wanted a festive mixture of color for the textile. This piece is definitely edgy! Enjoy! This piece is available!
