Stay obsessed by what you love...........

______Days are full and as much as I try to keep order, I find less time to write about it. The seasons change and sounds of the birds in early morning make me long to show through my work how this makes me feel. I hope that my design work will bring some of that to the fore. Someone said, "Do what you know, do what you love".
I only wish.
There are many ways to put nature in the work we all do. That is my guiding inspiration and a way to leave a part of myself in this beautiful world.______

January ...Epiphany

Today would have been my mother's 92nd birthday. reading about January 6th today and the Epiphany and all it used to stand for made me think perhaps my mother's short time on earth was like that of an angel. An angel with some problems but here to leave the importance of tiny things in the minds of her children. Every bird, every plant, every little animal, all I know about them I can attribute to her.......and the way pansies smell...all these things. Happy Birthday Mom...I miss you so.
I did finish a small piece. Just an idea of what may come. These polymer pieces are made by Terri Stone at TLSClay Design on Etsy. They are beautiful and I hope to use them more and more in mixed media necklaces. In this one I did misjudge the frame and to my chagrin had to shave down the polymer but I think the next one will be right. It is still beautiful, even with only the center showing. The frame and bail are fine silver, hand carved and finished.
Happy New Year to all. I hope this is a good one.
