New Work, New Year
(crossposted on dreamwidth as laurieopal)

I'm back from a combination of very relaxing holidays and a lot of intense creative work. I finished a whole group of waxes that I'd been working on for a long time, including the feathered dinosaur that sits on a gorgeous piece of fossilized dinosaur bone. It's body repeats the pattern in the stone in a subtle way. Very different creature then the one I originally visualized. Feathers for display not flight worked best for the stone and the total design.

And also included a garnet bodied spider and a fly perched on opposite ends of a web like bi-colored rutilated quartz.

And for the new Boskone collection I finished a large extremely vivid large red ammonite pendant design. I've been working on a group of new work for Boskone.

Photo below is from the collection of Wendy Czarnecki. This is one of the sea shaped Baltic amber stones that I was fortunate to get when I was in Finland. The setting is 14 kt and the chain is antique. It was designed with her chain in mind. Size is approximately 1.75"

I wanted the gold to reflect the exquisite depth of the stone.  The photo only suggests it.

Best to everyone in the new year.
