On the other hand, our new granddaughter may decide to emerge before Fri., in which case I'll be extremely happy that I'm sharing a booth, since Chase & Caroline will carry on for me.
But anyway, some pics. Bear in mind that bone hates to be photographed, so some of the skull pics are not that great.
As usual, having trouble with picture placement. This is called "Not so secret garden" and there's a closeup near the bottom.
This may be called "Octopus's Garden", though I'm not sure you can see the octopus, but I think it's really about Amelia Earhart, whose landing site may finally have been located. There are several pics of this, at least one of which has migrated to the bottom of this post.
|These are very Mexican feeling Caterina earrings for Dia de los Muertos. Skulls, flowers, lacy silver parasols--too bad they're impossible to photograph well! I hope you can get the idea.|
|Little steam punk skull earrings. Got raves as I was making them at last show.|
|Inside of the garden piece|
Lush garden in a tagua nut almost-box --one of my friend Ann Beal's rejects. I think it's just an ornament - really heavy & clumsy to wear, but everyone who's seen it, even Seth, oohed & aahed. I remembered that I CAN do other things than steampunk. I like the glowy stuff inside--sort of like a coral reef or maybe underground grotto. Several pics, spread out.
Another rejected tagua shell. Not sure yet which way it goes or what goes in it, but think it will come easily.
|Little antler log(?) also from Ann--wonder what will come out of the faucet?|
|Chase & I did a couple of bracelets--steam punk watch case centers with knotted hemp bands. This one needed pins. As you can see, I've added some in my own style.|
