Today is all about roses (playing with roses, smelling roses,
and designing a vase arrangement with roses).
Their soft pink tips are oh so very gorgeous!

First Peek At My New Work!

A Peek!
A first peek at my new papercutting I'm working on!
I feel like a kid in a candy shop (I have new paper, my favorite scissors, and papercutting tools out and working) and, I'm soooo happy!
Hope you enjoy the process, and my new work! : )

Cuff Without Ribbon

Votes are coming in!
Cuff better without ribbon!
Thanks! That's how I learn! : )


Cuff Done!

I have completed my first cuff (many more to come)!

This cuff is for a young lady who is going off to college on Wednesday. Sarah loves birds, so I tried to incorporate one into the design (I hope that she likes it)!

Diane Cook is an amazing teacher, and I thank her for the "Etched & Layered Cuff" class!


P.S. I LOVE working with metal!

Gilders Paste On Cuff

   Gilders Paste is now drying (loved working with this product)!
I used; African Bronze, Rust, then a touch of German Silver.

After drying I will coat with Renaissance wax polish, to seal the cuff!

Layering jewels will follow! : )

Wonderful class "Etched & Layered Cuff with Diane Cook"!
