This is the Chinese phoenix I was writing about earlier. It took a long time because of the detail and the stylization. Stones are deep orange sapphires it's sterling. It's about 2" high. I made it for Karen M. Herkes.
The detail is finer than the photo shows, but it gives a good idea of the design.
I've finshed the rings for Boskone and am working on final polishing and finished work designs. Just did a nightshade pendant with pearls, garnets, and clear blue antique Chinese glass beads. It's black sterling silver threaded with copper wire.
And tomorrow I'm working on a gingko necklace and some bronze pendants. Still lots to do.
Looking forward to Boskone and seeing my friends.
