I have to admit I've spent a good deal of time dancing *around my work this week, trying to figure out how to get in. I made a wedding set for someone, that was pretty straight away but somehow I kind of fell off track with my own work. I wanted to make something special, something out of the ordinary but still with a bird theme so I sat and sawed birds..
When I couldn't figure out what I wanted to do with them I excused myself and worked in my garden, I'm still pruning bushes, whacking back the rosemary, raking leaves, be glad it's snowing where you live, it gives you a good excuse to do other things, by spring you'll be excited to get out and work in your garden.
I adore these stones and have no idea what they are, mookaite perhaps? The color is just so Grand Canyon marvelous. I mimicked the sunset in the stone in the clouds above in silver and sent those little birds off to find a place to roost til morning.
I got so excited about this piece I could hardly wait to finish it. Here around the salt marsh...
his majesty, the Great Blue Heron is king. He actually, purposely wears a crown, though you may be the only one to really recognize that fact.
Montana agate is the stone that clearly depicts the weeds and rushes, a small bird is taking flight in a textured heart, that may be worn in the front or swung around to the back.
These are headed to etsy later today.
I hope you are all having a good and productive week.
xo under steel gray skies today, Ro
