The weather here has been rainy which is good for the soul, Banjo and I follow deer and coyote tracks, the air perfumed with sage and humus, wet dog, wet hair.
I made a pair of these for a friend who teaches grammar school, her students are always telling her, "there's something wrong here" :)
A beautiful and generous stone, simply set on a long chain, the horn of plenty perhaps. The 60's were the FAT years in many ways these are the lean.
I made a dear heart, two stones set side by side, depicting a deer ( deer not dear, Freudian slip) track textured edges and an oak leaf.
copper leaves copied from my little Eucalyptus Torquata. The leaves are waxed to stabilize the wonderful patina.
I set two mystic little opals each at the opposite end of the color wheel though they both flash green. I set them in a modish setting because I felt like it :)
A feather, I was asked to make one for a friend so I made two, one for etsy. I have rather steered away from feathers on etsy since they went v i r a l , and so it goes............ but I do love making them.
I adopted a little "hang dog" I keep trying to cheer him up, maybe he's just tired. I hope you can help me with a name. I saw him on etsy and he looked like he REALLY needed a home, I couldn't resist. I used to have a little dog museum in my store, I have collected antique dogs for the longest time. When I sold my shoppe I sold off most of my collection but I kept some I just couldn't part with. I'll show you them after Christmas.
The storm has broken, giving way to a beautiful morning, everything dressed in raindrops, sun screaming in.
I wont get these on to etsy until possibly Tuesday, waiting on Lovely Laura, or maybe I'll post them and add model shots later. (thinking out loud)
Happy day all, love Ro
