Getting Ready for Detcon1

I just finished setting the stones for the rings for Detcon1. They include a stunning Lloyd Eshbach blue tiger eye, a Peruvian opal, and a brilliant peridot.

Also finished but not set is the Baltic water shaped amber. I love the textures and the shadows in it.

I'm also making a black silver dragonfly with yellow gold wings set with a small black opal and a faceted garnet. Faceted garnets make great dragonfly eyes.

Also getting three photographs ready for the art show. Two nudes of Bernadette Bosky (She's one of the guests of honor.) from my book "Women En Large: Images of Fat Nudes" and one of Samuel R. Delany from "Familiar Men: A Book of Nudes".

I'm becoming seriously frazzled but it will all get done. Staring to look forward to seeing everyone there. And I get to go to the Sojourner Truth Museum!! More about that later.
