So I have been pretty lax in keeping up to date with my blog. See I am in crunch/deadline mode getting ready for the University District Street Fair on May 17, 18. The picture to the left is my booth from Anacortes Arts festival last summer. Just reminding myself what a full stocked booth looks like. I am down to the wire with just a couple of weeks to go. So I am feeling the stress, but I kind of enjoy the stress also. I often get more done with less internal critiquing when I am up against a deadline. The Virgo part of me would love to fuss and redo and pick and fuss till things were just "perfect", but when there is a deadline looming the firey Leo takes over and things just get done.. lol at myself.
This piece is my Burlesque inspired ring. Definitely not the most practical piece of jewelry but I love the whimsical nature of it. It is a asymmetrical copper and brass discs sandwiched with feathers, ribbons, and pieces of Susan's resin paper.
This was the first ring we worked on with beads or stones held captive between the metal band. I wish I would have gone for a narrower band that was a bit more refined, but next time. I do really like the way the sea glass juts up all wonky and asymmetrical..
Ok.. back to work.. I will post the projects from my other classes soon... hopefully..
