Ah, pink. Breezy, springy sweet and easy. Pink is the color of petals and innocence, of dessert and femininity. There is something light that comes to mind: a sigh. A rose lassi at an Indian Sweet shop.
Today in the metal shop there will be pink in triplicate.
The first ring is a delicious and large piece of Peruvian pink opal bezel set in a large freeform backplate and decorated with hammer marks, sterling coins and generously oxidized and brushed. The wide ring shank has been dotted with sterling, like so:
It is a size 7.75. Delicious!
The other day I got a shipment of the most gorgeous vintage Japanese cabochons, they feel like some sort of resin cast and they are painted in shades of pink and black - so playful and light!
I made one in size 7 with a narrow twisted wire band and one in size 8.25 with a wide art deco band so that two different tastes and sizes could enjoy them all the same.
I just got back from practicing with Matt E O and taking promo picks for both our tour and our big show in Redlands on February 25th at The Performance Loft.
Tomorrow one of my best friends and I might drive up the coast and rent a hotel overnight for a mini-vacay. That sounds heavenly to my very soul.
This photography and listing has been my hour of work for the weekend - how lovely to say a brief, "hello!" I am off to list and then off to read something under a comforter and a layer of cats.
