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.

Thanks so much. Your cat looks like mine.

The black and white was my first cat, Duzell. That sweet boy passed away in 2012, but I think he picked out our current cat. Pumba, the black cat pictured, announced himself to me the very same day when I brought Duz's uneaten food to my neighborhood shelter. Pumba's very different, shy where Duz was everyone's friend, but a snuggle bug, nonetheless. :-)
How did your cat find you?

I went to the shelter for a female kitten. George who was about 8-9 months and male spent 20 minutes going "take me home and I'll be lovable, affectionate and amusing forever". And so far it's all true
