....but it's time for a brief time out while I pack up the summer studio and move all this stuff to the winter studio. True to form, I'm working to the bitter end! I'm being a tad pissy--I hate moving and I hate to take time for it right now, but the camper goes into storage on Monday, so it's time to go. It's a busy final weekend here at the old campground, considering it's mid October, so Dakota and I have tonight and possibly one more night out here until next Spring rolls around. It's quite chilly and there are campfires burning everywhere tonight even as the 3/4 moon is quite bright.
But these two new pieces, are an interesting experiment. The top two images here show the slide lock form and style of cuff, and the 3rd one down is in long chain form shown wrapped as a cuff....but they are both essentially the same design, same stuff strung and crocheted on the same silk.
This one is an 83" plus long chain. I'm still trying to get a better handle on each of these multi-strand structures, and am seeing the barest inkling of why one would chose one form over the other. I did decide that the slide lock cuff needed an new embroidered bone medallion while the long chain is a new setting, with stars and a bone bead with a floral design, for an Om medallion. The first version of my Om medallion is nearly sold out so I figured making a new version might be a good idea. Time will tell.....
More lovely treasuries to enjoy! "Leather and Lace" was curated by apmemory. Her shop is very seasonal for autumn and Halloween right now including some adorable scrap booking bits.
And I mean, who can go wrong with leather and lace, right ladies? (...and gents?) I like the way bits of white and blue help pull it all together.
Curator ArtByAmarose has put a sort of moody collection together called "Horses and Cats and Feathers and Things." I really like the horse wall hooks--and her collection--all taken together--feels very seasonal to me in that melancholy, autumnal sort of way that I've mentioned here before. Anita is a photographer and has a broad selection of prints in her Etsy shop.
OK, time for just a bit more packing and I'm hitting the hay here at midnight strikes on Saturday night....have a lovely Sunday everyone!
