Good morning starshine…

19 Apr

The earth says hello.

Actually, it’s just me.

With my 2 broken toes and what may be pneumonia I’ve been so tired lately…Moving my body parts en masse just doesn’t agree with me, so I’ve been sitting down alot…

Yesterday Alex wanted to draw pictures, so I sat him at the table with his usual implements and he proceeded to draw lots of fans. The boy is obsessed with ceiling fans…

I busted out my sterling silver pieces and started playing, as though I was solving a puzzle…

I knew I had to use raindrops…Then I formed, soldered, hammered and polished some rings for future earring projects… But I needed to play with my torch a bit more (it’s just so calming)…Every piece added was “ok this is the last piece” and then I’d meticulously hand finish the whole piece to a mirror shine and then Eureka! I’d think of something else… Finally here’s what I came up with these earrings…At first look they seemed like round, centered goddesses embracing their bellies…At second look I realized that perhaps the obvious was too easy… These represent the elements, Earth (the little circle), Air (the negative space in the ring), and Water (the drop)…But what about fire? Silly- these were combined using fire, of course! Still, I think they look a bit like goddesses, like amazing, modern women (satin finished, sterling silver women!…) These would make a great gift for that modern mama next month!
