Koi in Metal

EDIT: Wowsers, you delicious ladies: the response via convo has been wonderful: the piece will be a ring, an orphan ring, which means I will take a picture of the finished canvas of the ring with the stone set lightly in the bezel.
Once the ring has ben purchased, a custom-sized shank will be made in whatever size is requested by the buyer.
I will likely be listing the ring sometime next week:
I will keep you posted on this blog!

I finally got fed up with my green stomach early this morning
and decided I would use my work to escape
not by wing, but by fin.

For as long as I could concentrate, I would hammer my way to comfort
moving fast and far from these waves
diving deep to where the stillness is

I found a stone to complete the sentence
looking for something with a flash
like a scaly beauty flicking its tail
to travel

Yes, spectrolite, yes.
You'll do nicely indeed.

Expect this beauty to become a special piece:
I am thinking either an orphan ring
or a necklace...

either way, keep your eyes
open for what she will become
in a little while.

oxo,
S

Hello, my dearest Lady!
I think I am going to wait and post this in the shop: there have been a number of interested convos.
I will certainly post details and times here on the blog, so be on the lookout, beautiful tattooed girl! xoxoxox

Amy,

When I started Les was like, "just keep practicing" - I was sad about my work and sure that I'd never 'feel' it the way I feel leather, but you'll do stuff like this, too!
I picture all manner of shells and starfish flowing from your hands :)

xoxo,
A
