Nightshade Done

The wax is finished and I'll be making a few of them for my upcoming shows.  Really anxious to see the nightshade in silver.  Disc World broomstick is progressing.  I want it to look like it's flying and that will be partly the shaping of the broom and also the angle at which it will sit when worn.  I think it will need to hang off a bead (very possibly garnet) to fly properly on.

The diamond flecked water fall on the Chinese Mountain pendant is just about finished also.

A gear-work earring design is coming together.  It wasn't in my design plans for right now but there it is happening anyway. It's looking quite different then anything I've done.

Apropos of thinking about giraffes, I wanted to put up a video of giraffes "dancing" but couldn't make the embedding work. I took the embed from You Tube and put it in the embed media box and insert but nothing appears in Preview. Any thoughts?

And d'Arci Bruno, the Curator of the Impossible, did a wonderful video  of her exploration of huge graffiti pieces in an enormous decaying warehouse in Alameda that will soon be condemned.  I linked to it on Body Impolitic.
