And One More

Another of Sophie's favorites.  The stones are light weight and I just love their nuances. This one measures 2" total. I will make a longer cord for this, it really needs to fall longer. Thanks for looking! (And no I never sit still) LOL

Sophie Made Me Do These

When I go to the beach to walk I collect shells or stones. Lately small sand colored stones have caught my eye and I fill my pockets with them. Thinking of all things to do with them I think..hmm, how could I wear them?? Taking Roger's Dremel I drilled a hole , and that in itself is a project, and had my neighbor show me some of her wire wrap jewelry.

I'm a visual learner and I thought..hey, I can do that. LOL...oh it's harder than it looked, as you see. Placing all the stones down Sophie will nose each one then chose. (Actually she wants to walk away with it) The design is done using Argentium Silver wire. It keeps it's shine, maybe rub it every so often. The whole piece is 2 3/4" and will sell for 12.00 plus 5.00 shipping in a small box. I will include an 18" black velvet cord.

My ultimate goal obviously is to become more skilled and incorporate Labs! Painted on or small actual paintings wrapped in silver.

"But I Want To Be At The Beach Too!"

Here in our County dogs are not allowed on the beach. Sophie would love it! We snuck her on when she was younger and she chased sea birds and got sick on salt water. It was a day to remember.

This is oil on stretched canvas 12" x 12" x 1" with sides painted ready to hang.  With the holiday this past weekend I just needed to do it.

Remember 20% off for all my patrons and clients. This Painting would look fantastic in a beach house or by the Lake!

Thanks for looking, Sheila
