Exploding Flowers

I'm in the midst still of getting the work done for Arisia.  I'm wondering if anyone who reads this diary will be there.

I've have all of the lost wax work set, finished as pendants, earrings etc.  Lots of work with pliers and design.

Still have some steam punk antique beads and parts jewelry to make.

Took some time out and photographed three commissions.  Two of them haven't been seen yet by the folks that commissioned them so I can't put them up yet. 

But I can put up a photo of Nancy Cobb's  pop art pendant with the exploding flowers set with the Madagascar ocean jasper.  This is the first piece I've done with a comic book visual vocabulary.

Please click on the photo for details.  Actual size is 3" wide by about 2.25" high.

I hope I get a chance to work in this vocabulary again.

I've talked to some very helpful people who make letterpress type.  Was hoping to get there before I leave but it's just too dense.  When I get back.  I still want to have some words as part of the carvings.
