Fall inspiration…

Although I have no shows scheduled for the foreseeable future, I feel inspired each day to continue creating.

One of my favorite new discoveries is called MetalMagic- a truly fun way to transform garden leaves into wearable Sterling silver pendants.

Small leaves pressed onto the thinly rolled clay are kiln-fired to 1600 degrees Fahrenheit for 60-90 minutes. This allows the binder to burn away, leaving the silver, which is .960 pure -slightly higher than Sterling. Upon removal from the cooled kiln, I clean, oxidize, and polish the silver leaves.
