Gentle, curving lines I previously didn't know how to effect are now flowing out of my hands like silk...
I practice everyday.
This is a component that will soon go into a necklace with one of my Lucky Strike Agates and boy oh man am I excited!!!
With my newfound forming knowledge I crafted a ring, a flower with five undulating petals and an agua nueva agate center: milk white, red, brown and darkest black.
This one is for the wee fingers, fit for a 5.5.
Be still my heart!!!!
A few more beauties on the bench for this week are these:
wowsers Morrissonite in UNREAL shades of pink, mustard and brown... it's just too pretty, too rare..
One of my slices of Priday Plume!!!
I didn't yet trust myself to cab these with the plumes soooo close to the surface, so I sent them on to Gary and Kathie over at The Agate Works, and as always, their work astounds!!
These plumes are so magical, so dark and mysterious with moss: they are, like opals, best under light and still sweet in dim light.
My easel is set up for painting, with a canvas Anthony's grandma sent to us: Grandpa Larry had purchased many canvases with the intent to use them before he got so ill last year.
With his sad passing, they were sitting fresh and unused, awaiting his brush.
I hope his hand will help guide me as I embark on my first ever series:
animal faces in black and white
behind curtains of tooled leather folliage.
I am too excited to begin and so honored to be painting with heavenly guidance.
Thanks, Grandma, for the gift.
