I hope everyone is enjoying the hustle and bustle of the season. I know I am, the kiddies are on Christmas break and we've been making gingerbread barns, cookies, and catching up with our favorite holiday movies. Don't forget to take a breather though and enjoy the holiday.
Now, it's safe to reveal a couple other pieces that I created earlier this month. My cousin contacted me about making something special for my aunt, who just celebrated her birthday this past Friday. This is what I came up with...
A tutorial for fold-formed earrings were in the most recent issue of Art Jewelry. I love the fold-formed look and decided that these would be perfect for my aunt. I had originally planned on just oxidizing the copper. However, they were just so boring, that I broke out the enamels and the torch and went to town...SO much better.
For this set...I was looking for something kinda whimsical but meaningful.
I made these earrings a while ago, but included them in her package because I was told that she liked them.
These earrings were inspired by Mary Hetts book Wrap, Stitch, Fold, & Rivet.
I was unable to attend the party, but my mom did and said that she was happy with everything.
Happy Birthday Aunt Betsy!
