Lots of ideas float around in my head: shapes, forms, colors, and textures. Some make it to paper and then even fewer make it to actuality. My bench time has been limited this year but I have tried a few new directions. Now to go back and add texture, find other colors and to change the size.

We are reviving this Holiday shop once held in my home. This year it will be held at Baltimore Woods with refreshments and raffles to support the woods. Lots of great parking. 10 great Artisans, what's not to like?
Check out this wonderful write up!

A customer asked me to make a necklace similar to the falling leaves earrings I had posted in my Etsy shop.
So I started looking around my studio to find some tin to use and remembered a piece from a vintage baking tin.
After playing with the tin and cleaning it up, I found it made a beautiful sculptural leaf.
I finished the leaves put them together with a neat little bail.
So now I am looking for more baking tins.

Another special request, take the river otter, (that handsome gal in the center of the screen):
and add a frame
maybe needs to be cooler in cooler
maybe a different shape
and then start playing with other elements to add on the necklace
with lots to choose from.
And then on to the final necklace:
A happy client and a wonderful solution!
