4-11-16


well, it's "maker Monday"... my continuing series of posts where I feature something I've made recently,
 and encourage the maker lifestyle...

This week, I've been doing some design work for people. Posters and flyers (3) for a friend's shop, ideas for advertising work for a festival coming in the fall, and one for a local festival coming in May. I've also been trying to get some of my work ready to put in a shop; and have been brainstorming about displays. And, I've been madly trying to organize things a bit (at least in my mind) of things I need to do.
But none of things are really "show-able" on a post.

I did however, finish this pair of earrings. Made from sterling wire, these earrings feature Butterscotch Jade, carved yellow jade and the most exquisite solid sterling Buddha charms. I bought these charms probably close to 20years ago. They are substantial, and were made using the lost wax technique. They are signed on the bottom by the artist. The jade is pretty amazing too. Rich in color, and the carving on the yellow jade round beads is a gorgeous detail.


So. I will try to cross a couple things off of my list of things to do (a clipboard full)... and I will see you all tomorrow.
