Hello! Here are my newest pieces, finished this past week, with a penny to show scale. The bird baby fits within the diameter of a penny (super small!). This lot will be new for the Bead and Button Show in Milwaukee. Its a whirlwind of casting and carving around here. Our good friend Bob Burkett flew in from San Francisco last night to cast with us and prepare for the show (he will be showing his work at our table). Tomorrow we will get the burners out to carve new waxes (the batch above was carved out of polymer clay). The weeks preceding a show are always so intense, I stay up really late (sometimes till dawn) working on masters and sample jewelry. The house is so quiet, no phones or disturbances - my ideal conditions. My sister Sheila is here and helps with Azalea and household duties so its been a breeze to finish 5 masters in a week. Well, its back to work for me!
