Cold Weather Productions- On A Roll
Nothing like a bit of unseasonably cold weather to drive me into the studio.
Snowing and blowing to beat the band just 8 miles from the Mexican border.
Actually the torching studio was too cold so I spent the last two days making some new earrings.
I was trying to stretch a bit and make non-matching earrings extra long.
...and loose up some of my new supplies...punch holes into 1000 year old relics
wire it, dangle it make it balance somehow.
The sun came out enough to photograph a few
I realized that having the earrings close to the same weight was important to me.
I think it feels funny to have one significantly heavier than the other.
Blobs torched right on to the crude filigree
Ceramic pieces in the middle from a supply swap
dapped disks of a crusty aluminum baking pan
yak bone mala beads
This is what I do with my own headpins
brass disks, yak bone mala beads and numinosity headpins
Was inspired to make some red earrings after reading alek's post at infinity stop
red yak bone mala beads, dapped copper disks, copper spacers
Copper earrings with wire
More amphoras~ currently in my shop
And just to show you what my first earrings looked like when I started out back in '97
even before I was making my own beads!
