✭✭✭Savage Beauties✭✭✭

      
      i am immensely proud of these new pieces....i knew what i wanted to do with them and they became the vision i carried in my head. These are experimental in nature....and deeply connected to my passion for the wild and the animal kingdom. When i say i put my heart and soul into these i mean it fully and totally. I hope these will be the forerunners of a long lineage of naturally shed antler pieces...i'm looking into using other natural animal materials as well. I've spent the month of July in learning mode....design challenges that were looming dark and foreboding worked themselves thru in time...until the solution came gently knocking on my minds cellar door. Etching and i have become friends....not best friends but were working on it....maybe i should rephrase...copper and I are best friends (copper etches like a dream)...sterling....a misbehaved problematic child....who will learn discipline for it's own good (good moments and bad)! More etched pieces will be arriving in August...as well as new design concepts....ready to take their first breaths. I promised my bronze Jack-a-lope on this post too.....so he'll make an appearance somewhere....he's very artistic (a painter) and he writes poetry when not nibbling carrots in the garden. His name....well he's unnamed to date so suggestions are welcome.

The Savage Beauties  Series:

Savage-  Not domesticated or cultivated; wild.
Beauties- A combination of qualities, such as shape, color, or form, that pleases the aesthetic senses, esp. the sight.

Wild Spirit Etched Sterling Deer Burr Pendant

And last but not least......Jack...well maybe...

♥♥♥love to all, Sue
