Kirk and I made 35 resin ornaments for his office co-workers and some friends. We made them with white dominoes, holiday pictures, resin and ribbon. I was so proud of how they came out and I forgot to photograph them. He is at his office party today and gave them out this morning. Oh well, I will have to find some more dominoes at another garage sale. The fun is in the looking.
The Kambaba Jasper is made from petrified blue green algae that is about three billion years old. It is supposed to calm you. I designed the necklace with the clasp in the front to add interest and added my sister-in-laws favorite thing, a palm tree. What could be more relaxing?
I also made some winter earrings for my Mother-in-law, June. She loves silver so they have a ice theme going on.
I made the pin in conjunction with the Artisian Whimsy Metal Prong Challenge. The exercise was to see if I could solder pins to brass and I did but it was trial and error so I learned a lot.
I decided to patina it with black and then polish it back to the brass color and I like it a lot better.
The last thing I wanted to share was the mask that Kirk made for his boss, Sunnie. It was quite different and I love it.
Have a wonderful holiday!
