It is springtime in the foothills and I had been looking forward to taking a break from the normal! Normality is what Ted calls it. Get out. It was time to shake some of that normality off.
I headed up to the hills. Bees. Birds. Flowers. Breezes. Springtime.
Sitting in a sea of tall grass watching as it gently danced to the touch of the wind. Green with wisps of faded color, my companion as I sat in the midst with my camera in hand. Watching. I was literally right in the middle of springtime!
There’s nothing like a few hours away for quiet discovery. It’s always the small things that can make such a difference!
I return home and with a refreshed sense of spirit and balance let me share what I found on the workbench!
These pieces will be bold copper earrings, rich with primitive Celtic style. The rolled copper pieces are held with hammered copper wire. Hammered copper discs’ are in the background and will be used in other jewelry creations.
Ted might wrap some wire at the top before it’s suspended from a copper chain. Or maybe it will be suspended from a leather cord.
I’ll show these again when they are finished and complete. In the meantime…..
I’ll see you soon at the Forge!
