Clearing the Bench

These charm bracelet pieces have been hanging around for awhile waiting patiently for me to get over the flu so that I could finish them up!

Candle Sticks

I have been thinking of tin candle sticks for over a year now and finally after many stops and starts have come up with a design which utilizes lids of the smaller tins I deconstruct.  Joining methods include tabs, pop rivets and copper rivets.  A good exercise in functional work.

When the Chickens Come Home

A very kind artist has given me a container of brass stampings.  In there, many roosters were roosting.
I have had the box since Thanksgiving and the roosters have been quietly urging me to open the box and let them out.  I thought they might be lonely so I looked through my tin and found a few other roosters and several chickens.
Then I started drawing chickens and cutting them out of tin.  I am thinking necklaces, but there might be a brooch or two lurking in the hen house.
