Actual size is 2.5" by 1.5".
Will be working on more photos in November. I had a little help with this one, so I still have a ways to go, especially when I'll be working in color (an unfamiliar medium). And I only think this one is OK not great.
Today I did the much needed garden work I've been putting off while getting the jewelry done. Took 5 large bags of leaves out of the garden. This sounds like I'm somewhere in the Northeast but actually my Californian plum trees drop all their leaves after turning a pretty but unremarkable yellow. And I pruned an anonymous tree that had grown a bit into my lemon tree into an arch. My garden has lots of shaped arches but in a very organic non topiary kind of way.
And I'm almost finished with the remnant nova pendant in wax. Once I realized it was mostly about negative space, the final work just flowed.
And I finally figured out my alien gear pin forwhumpdotcom. It's going to be a gold alien artifact lodged in dark silver that is either layered rock or possibly a piece of a meteor. The dark sapphires will go in the silver.
Altogether a good day.
Mood: Very good
