This is the 3rd piece in my "Brushstrokes" series inspired by color splotches and brushstrokes...

I'm trying out the "multiple views" for one submission idea again. It seems to work well with this piece as all the views relate very well to one another.

This piece was blown solo, with no assistants at Scott benefield's studio back in October '05. I just finished the engraving on it as well. It will be one of the first new pieces to go on my "new" website, which should be going live by the end of the month.

The piece took about 4 hours to blow, and then I spent around 15 hours engraving it... It's a 5 part encalmo, switch axis.

About 18" tall

Based on wood carvings apparently depicting protective spirits for fishermen. Carved all way round, sterling silver... on ice :)

An origami triskell I folded for a friend after he told me he is going to have one tattoed on his back.
(A triskell, not an origami).
It's a design I created a while ago and then left wandering around....
I'm not really satisfied of the folds on this one, they're not as neat as they should, but I was too lazy to look for another suitable piece of paper and start it over again.
What I find fascinating though is how you get curves from straight lines only :) (Smile)

Scrap wire ring made with silver nickel and brass wire. Just kind of a wire doodle, I guess; almost, but not quite a Celtic knot.

I couldn't come up with a good name, so I give you... a Celtic knot ring! Dun dun duuun!

...anyway - mephit, made with a certain stuff called milliput, and made the eyes out of perspex...

Capturing the Vacuum - cyberpunk meets steampunk jewelry in a vacuum tube pendent. I realized its been a while since I've uploaded any of my cyberpunk/steampunk vacuum tube necklaces. I haven't made any for a while and now finally have some up on my etsy site.

There is something really amazing about these wonderful vacuum tubes. Originally they would have been used in electronics - televisions, radios etc. Once they were even used to make computers. Now, this stunning tube has been repurposed into an unusual piece of jewelry!

The vacuum tube is about 6cm long - about 2.4inches by over 2cm wide - about .8 of an inch. It really looks fantastic reflecting the colours around it.

The detail inside these tubes are truly incredible - shiny silver, delicate filaments and wonderful electrodes sealed under glass inside a vacuum. This one has some lovely of colour where the copper goes through the glass.

I designed a "hardware" chain - using various bits of standard, modern hardware and some great darker link beads. I chose some very dark hardware (have a look at the photo of the chain) - so that the round dark bits echo the round hole in the detail.

finally posted them to etsy,

Needle felted Mr. Saturn! bOinG zOom!

he's about two inches tall made of white and peach colored wool. his hair is made of imitation leather and whiskers made of bead weaving thread! Since he's so small, thanks to ~skei he is now called Mr. Pocket Saturn..because he can fit in your pocket! =P
tho i don't recommend you put him literally in your pocket or else you'll bend his whiskers! D:

this is the second one i've made actually, but this one turned out much better, and is a little sturdier as well

i'm thinking about making a ton of these guys and selling them...so keep a lookout for updates on that

I made this the last day of metals class just to have something for critique. For a three hour endevour, it turned out rather well. The shapes represent the four sacred chinese animals, the dragon, the tortoise, the ki'lin, and the pheonix. It's just a little, tiny, lidless box.

Ah, before I get any more comments on this, I drew my sources for the four animals from a book. Two folk now say that the unicorn-type beast ought to be a tiger instead. I'm not saying that other people are wrong; the book could very well be. Or it could be either depending on where you are in the country or depending on the era you draw from. That's the way of culture. In anycase, if I'm totally off, I apologize, especially if I offend someone over it. I really didn't want to. I thought I could trust published material, but I guess not. On the matter of the tortoise, I know the oriental depiction is very different, but I decided on a more realistic one just out of artistic choice. I liked the large, positive space, and had it had that long neck in there, it would have a different shape than I wanted.

27" earthenware w/ slips and underglaze

i only had this little guy for like 1hr. He came out of the kiln and went right to the gallery. The show opening is tomorrow...and i'm hoping i get a good response. This is a much larger piece than my other figures.

The show is called the ABCs of Craft. Each artist was given a letter...mine was S...and we were supposed to do a piece about that letter. I decided to do a humorous piece about my inability to spell. In a rather ironic turn of events i managed to overlook the fact that all pieces were supposed to be limited to 8" in any direction. Whoops....that dunce cap takes on new meaning.

I was not satisfied with my husband's previous goggles which were just a mod I did of the ubiquitous Restoration Hardware German goggles so I made him a new pair. They are based off wood rings. The other materials used are metal and leather. The left eye has a lens from an old pair of glasses so other than needing to trigger the left he can actually see out of them.
