This custom order moved me deeply and I had to share it with you:
On the back is a personalized bit of writing with an art deco bent... oh dear it echoed so much of me and I just nearly cried as I was setting the stone: what a magnificent Mookaite!!
What a magnificent story behind it all.
I also made a little something for the Metal Shop: I have missed making sprout trees and so I decided to try for a Bonsai.
Short story: when I met Anthony I thought he loved Bonsai trees to the point of wanting to HAVE one and so for Christmas I bought him one and had it shipped.
It was beautiful.
It was deceased within 6 months.
I named him 'Bonzi' and nearly wept as his leaves sprinkled down into his little tree-like roots...
This Bonsai tree will never shed its little silver and Nephrite Jade leaves - oh no - it is good for the life of you and whoever you pass it down to.
You can even name it and get attached, promise!
There are even tiny blades of grass in negative space.
I think I am falling more and more in love with my c-frame saw lately: it was something I abhorred doing when I first began to smith and now
I crave the sound and the sight of silver snow drifting onto the ground.
The eternal Bonsai will be in the Metal Shop shortly!
