A New Webpage




Listed on Etsy



After considerable head scratching & choice words, I've managed to fumble my way through to producing a basic yet functional webpage. I've moved a few items from Etsy and added a few more. I will be listing items there separate from Etsy so please have a look now and again.  


I also have a stash of fossil walrus ivory procured from Kim (Numinosity beads) ages ago. It will be nice to have an outlet where I may sell some fossil carvings. New pieces to the webpage are this moth I've created using keum-boo on fine silver, sterling silver, pewter and brass. Here's the beginning idea -


and the finished piece done with repousse & I guess 'gouging' might actually best describe the creation of the drawn bits -



I also have listed another pair of bird with coral berry earrings & tribal dangles.


My neighbors have been busy making more neighbors.
This family comes by every year for assistance & a safe harbor for their new kits. Always glad to help them out. 


A chance meeting one morning between this box turtle who stopped briefly in it's trudge across the lawn & this rabbit.
Rabbit declined to race.


Thanks for stopping by the neglected blog.
Be well

De-stash lots


For anyone interested....
I'm cleaning shop a bit and listing a bunch of de-stash on PipnMolly. Mounds of chain and other mixed hodge podge lots.

More birds




Birds in the blooming Redbud. A lovely Cardinal pair.



I've been away a bit but am now back to work. Just finished another pair of fine & sterling bird head earrings. They've been oxidized to a nice golden glow with darker detail. The fringe and ear wires are sterling while the bird heads are chased in fine silver.
Berry in beak is red coral.
