Finished and.....Gone!

It feels really good to labor over a piece for days and days and even better when I get it done and it sells the first day.

Edited to add a process pic.

Baubles and Babes

Ten days in West Texas blissfully doing little girl things with my darling granddaughter and now I'm heading home again to my treeful haven.

Time away refreshes my creative streak so I can hardly wait to get started burning and hammering metal.

I got some nice things done before I left.

This is a natural turquoise from the Nevada Royston mine,  designed with a bail big enough for this handmade Viking Knit chain.  I'm proud to say that except for the purchased stone and clasp I've fabricated it all from wire and sheet.

There are more on my bench waiting for completion.

I think the grandmother gig is about the best job ever.  My Georgie loves to talk and imagine so we have a great time together.
