We're All Ears - August 2015



USA Antelope-Canyon.jpg
Antelope Canyon - Sculptural Natural Rock Formations
Inspiration this month comes from the amazing rock formations found in the Antelope Canyon, Northern Arizona.  At certain times of the year these weather worn creations are turned into ethereal sculptures by shafts of sunlight beaming through for short magical spells each day. They have a dangerous side too, prone to sudden flash floods that have caused loss of life.  They are to be gazed upon with wonder but like the sea, they must be treated with respect.  Revered and protected by the Navajo people these rocks can only be visited with an official tour guide.

So for me, the above picture is all about copper and silver. I formed these earring drops from copper clay to reflect the textures worn into the sandstone and they hang from small sterling silver textured hoops.

Behind the Scenes

There's a few things going on behind the scenes...

vintage style bunny

...I'm working towards getting my toy safety certification sorted out for the EU and US. That's a long story for another day.

I'm also thinking about offering some copper clay pieces as jewellery components...

A name change for my shop may be in order too as it's not just about vintage anymore but maybe not...we'll see...xx

Baby Sparrow

Fledgling Sparrow
Heard a bit of a fracas going on outside and saw this little guy tumble to the ground.  There are house sparrow nests in several corners of our roof.  He's strong enough to fly so all should be well.  Luckily Evie was inside at the time!


Seriously!

 But I do not think it's funny that I had to light the fire in August!!  xx
