Tiny bees are something I’ve always loved this one isn’t as tiny as some I’ve seen he is 3/4 of an inch tall, the texture turned out so well I can’t wait to make more.
Not a great photo cuz it’s really hard to take a photo of your own neck.
I’ve been playing with electroforming after about ten years and I forgot just how much fun and unpredictable it is.
This beautiful crystal is topped with a purple druzy my friend Melissa gave me. It’s about 2.5 inches long and has a ton of amazing texture.
This tiny fairy door sets on a hand cut lapis door step. It measures 1.5 inches tall, it’s the first time I’ve ever seen red come up using liver of sulphur, that’s not a filter.
I love how this one turned out, it's topped by a very colorful crystal and measures 2.5 inches tall.
Mr Nome is all of an inch and a half tall and really woody looking.
With the help of my amazing friend Cara we figured out how to light my jewelry. These are treasures Dave picked up on Fort Lauderdale Beach, coke bottle glass and shell set on copper hung from a hinged neck wire.
This has a little hand made battery/light pack that slides in and out so you can change the battery. I have no idea what the battery life will be so tomorrow I plan on wearing it to see just how long it will stay lit.
The second cass I took in Tucson was a stamping class with Danny Wade and it was a very informative class. He showed how to work with difficult large stamps and we learned how to rock and lock a stamp instead of just depending on it making a perfect mark by hitting straight down.
I also got this amazing Navajo bracelet.
I went out to Tucson again this year and took another class from Richard. He always pushes my abilities to the max and this project was way beyond my comfort zone but I built the whole thing without melting anything and that was a first for me!
I found this tray with these flowers embossed on it so I cut them out and set them with raised rivets onto recycled roofing copper. The backs of all pendants have been powder coated. These have little felt pads that slip between the layers so you can defuse your favorite oil.
That’s a reflection on the back of this not missing powdercoating.
I’ve had some trouble posting to my blog so I reverted to Instagram but I’m back and hope to catch up with the past year.
I took a Richard Salley class in September and made this poison ring. I’ll be headed to Tucson at the end of the month for another of his classes and I can’t wait.
