Phoenix Rising…


Just finished this necklace today. It’s been a while since I’ve been really excited to get down to the studio and open the kiln because I was so pumped about what was waiting in there.
It’s kind of symbolic that the first new work of my self-inflicted exile be a phoenix…. rising from the ashes and all that….corny I know, but I like the analogy 🙂
And I’m excited to fine tune the design some more.
Hope you’re having a lovely weekend!!

Go Saints!!!!
(LOL…. that exclamation is echoing around in my head… I’m not really a football fan. But I do love New Orleans, and they could do with a little rising from the ashes too, don’t you think? 🙂 )

Meet The Girls…

Well here they are…. my work from Emilio Santini’s class…

I’m rather proud of myself if I do say so… 🙂 Far from perfect, but I feel pretty good about them. I also made a horse, but unfortunately, it was so lame it had to be put down.

I don’t know what the deal with the bird heads are…. geez! me and birds…. ( a la Luccio Bubacco’s Fantasy series I suppose, but I couldn’t seem to stop adding them on! )
