I'm trying to get back to my daily routine, my morning hikes with the dogs, one extra right now Banjo's buddy is staying with us, he was here for our show, poor doggies, locked up for two days. The weather has been perfect for hiking in the morning with a nice cool blanket of ground fog which I usually manage to hike up and out of. Here are a host of rings celebrating my morning glories.
I kept the setting simple with a nice frame and a pretty band textured with flora, unfurling ferns and the like.
This is one beautiful moss agate, the setting evokes simplicity, peacefulness. I added two silver beads that cause your eye to sweep the design in the stone.
Feathers, Feathers everywhere, I'm finding mostly owl feathers right now but the Red Tail feathers will be molted soon, I'm starting to hear the babies cry now with regularity.
I sit in my studio and mind my own business, my business is studying natures gifts and figuring out how to bring them to life in my work.
A more perfect stone could not be had......a stunning and unusual example of birds eye rhyolite. I've never seen one quite like this, I covet them. I wonder if other metalsmiths hang on to stones they love and get to know them for a while before sending them out....molting them.
* I was very flattered when so many of you show goers told me you read my blog, if you see something you want to own, send me an email and we'll set up a time for pick up. I can be reached by etsy convo as well.
Have a fantastic day all, xo Ro
