hnnn. Been a while since I wrapped ammolite, for sure. Still a favourite of mine. I've recently been thinking that I veer towards fossils a lot - ammolite, ammonite, petrified woods, amber, copal. I'm getting some amber soon.
Oh, and the name of this one, in Cantonese, means simply "forever".
Goater was a commission from a friend of mine for her boyfriend Smile she drew me a little reference sheet, and off I went to sculpting! This guy kinda fought me the whole way though.....especially his paint job....I learned a lot making this little guy that will arm me better for future goat projects though, and despite his little flaws, I'm rather proud of him!
Anyway.. I can't remember who is base was..i think it was a Wysteria.....He was painted mostly with Golden artist acrylics, but I did use some Delta ceramicoat for the gray washes on him!
Moonstone locket in Argentium Silver with clear quartz beads.
It occurs to me that, once, quite a while ago when I was starting wire work, I had another necklace that I had given this name. No matter, this one refused to be named anything else, despite my best efforts.
This one is a gift to one of the authors that I admire greatly - Freda Warrington. If you haven't read her work... well, much of it is out of print, but I loved The Jewelfire Trilogy so much, I could never forget it, and it (and by natural extension, she) has influenced my writing and other crafts much. I also admire Freda's person, for I'm absolutely certain that one who writes as she does must be incredible in many ways - not the least, in resolve and discipline, both being qualities I aspire to.
Hematite is one of two Pegasus boys I'm uploading today. His wings are Made from Apoxie clay over a wire frame. With such a simple stark color scheme I considered leaving him without a symbol, but I eventually decided I'd stick with my original planned symbol (a sort of tribal style mountain range) but on the non-display side.
Got more attention from the double plate set than expected so I figured I may as well overdo it lol! Anyway, these full sets are available as custom orders in any design you can imagine as well as what you see in the catalogs. The tray is three inches wide and there are two magnets on the back.
