Hello! Here is a new clasp cast in shibuichi (will also be available in silver) its about 1 1/4" across. This piece was sculpted twice, once out of wax, which was ruined in the mold and second out of pmc - which is awesome for masters, since its already metal, it can't be messed up. I like this clasp, it feels sturdy and secure and I don't mind if it flips to the front of a bracelet, its so fancy. I've spent the weekend working on Stringing submissions. The deadlines always seem to sneak up on me, luckily most of the hard part was finished last week, so all I had to do was string. It takes me forever to come up with projects I'm happy with, I'll have half a dozen possibilities laid out, then they are agonized over for a long time. Half the problem is I like imagining who would wear the piece and make up stories about them and how the jewelry is magical (like a teleportation device, or the power of being amazingly charming). I've been reading The Mistress of Spices and Howl's Moving Castle, so magic and fairy tales are on my mind. Well, its time to write instructions!
