World Fantasy and Tektite Pendant

I'm back from a very restful and much needed vacation and working at my wax bench.

I'll be at World Fantasy Con in Washington DC in early November.  It's back in the US after 2 years abroad and I'm especially delighted to be going.

As part of this years 40th anniversary World Fantasy they have made an ebook for attendees of literature and original art.  They asked me for work. The ebook includes 8 photos of my work. It was really hard to decide because I needed a very limited number of images of my very best work, that showed it's breadth and were also excellent photos. It was a very difficult decision and there is a lot of equivalent quality work that could just as easily be here. It's all relatively recent work because I didn't start photographing my work until I began this journal.

I'll be putting them up this month before I go.

The first one is Exoplanet with Satellites. It's sterling silver, tektite, cats eye moonstone, and pearl - size approximately 4"

From the Collection of Beth Zipser:

I'm working on designs for World Fantasy right now including a pendant for their WW1 theme.  It's a pendant in silver of a poppy on barbed wire, from the poem "In Flanders Fields ..."

And I have a photo of a pair of opal and diamond earrings I'll put up after next Monday when the woman I made them for comes to my studio.
