A Wing to Rise, a Leaf to Grow

both pieces have been reserved; thank you for the oodles of overnight convos!!! Xoxo

A small but mighty Botswana Agate, collector quality

a fully hammer-engraved wing

Something that's been in the works for a while now,

finally a reality.

I cannot tell you how this feels....ah :)

Or how it feel ON --- AHhhhhhhhhhh!!!!

And then there's this special beauty.

When Kelly visited, we collected leaves and I watched as she cranked the handle to put the metal through the rollers on my beloved rolling mill....

the stone is dendritic agate in a very definite pattern!

The rolling mill is taking over my thoughts: wondering what textures I can apply to metals, what bits I can collect from the woods, from my yard...

endless possibilites...

Both of these very special pieces will be available in the shop later this week,

and they can be reserved with a simple


As always, love and gratitude,
Allison

I wanted to respond as soon as I saw this, but was in a stupor from being at the office for 12 hours. My jaw nearly hit the floor. LOVE. Wish I had hit up the reserve before they got snatched up!
