Parts, Yoga and Columbine

I just did yoga. I've haven't been making it to class because life got very dense. I'm usually terrible at doing a practice at home and good about going to class so we'll see how this goes.

Made some steam punk parts and antique bead pieces today. On of the watch parts is amazing, with tiny gears elegantly on one side of a large steel one. I'm enjoying how different steel looks from silver. It calls for different design.


This is the columbine necklace that I wrote about  here.  I had expected to do a profile view of the flower but this front view worked.  Like the tree this took a lot of very delicate carving. Stones are garnets.  As usual  please click on to enlarge.





I have pasta cooking so I'm ending here.
