Heat-colored copper (I honestly don't know how it happened to become a gorgeous brick red, if anyone knows these things then I beg you enlighten me!)
with a labradorite center...
a prototype of a flower I would like to make quite a few of...
Down the center of each petal runs a thin engraved line, and on its bright and shining petals are a few drops of sterling dew...
This one, the first born of its kind is precious to me.
When I woke up this morning I was giddy, the way you are when you've made something you really love...that child-like Christmas feeling inside!
These are my home footwear until at least April: I look like I belong on a set back in the late 70s for Star Wars as an extra on the planet Hoth, but man oh man are they warm!!
They are Emu boots, Maitress is the model.
The leaves really do change here in San Jose, much like in dearest Petaluma, the main difference between here and the East Coast is the profusion of color over there and the lateness of the season over here...
I must say, it warms my heart to see fall happening again, though it is late and underwhelming: six years of no change (though the trees in Los Angeles DO lose their leaves, they just kind of brown and fall down) autumnal signs do bring me joy!!
steaming mugs of tea....
I wish you all a wonderful weekend and send you fond thoughts on this rainy Saturday in California!
