2009 Tubac Holiday Artisan Market: Fourth Piece Finished and Delivered!

Hello my Blogland friends! is finally finished:  the fourth and final submission for the 2009 Tubac Holiday Artisan Market called "Summer" :

" Summer"

I started with a huge copper bead that I etched and colored, and then heaped about 20 small flower/bead/crystal charms on top of it.  The chains for the necklace and the bracelet are made from jasper, Austrian crystal and German glass beads, and both pieces have small groupings of flower charms hanging sporadically from different links.  The earrings are made from copper, and have flower and bead charms hanging from them as well.

I think this is my favorite of the four sets - the colors and the design are really fun, and I loved making all three pieces.

I delivered all four sets to Tubac today, and am happy to be able to get them into their hands and out of mine.  I encourage anyone who lives in the Phoenix/Tuscon area to make the trip and see the exhibit, opening November 20th and running through January 2nd.  I snuck a peek at some of the other artists' pieces, and they are unbelievably beautiful!

Have a great night all!

I think this final one is a tie as my favorite...along with the Spring piece. You are just overflowing with wonderful all comes so naturally. Can you send some of that inspiration my way?? :-)

What a beauty Molly, this one is superbe too, difficult to make a choice among the four pieces, but this one is so original with the lovely etched round bead and all the sweet flowers hanging. I made a zoom at the links, and found them beautiful too. Great job, really. It will surely be a success at the exhibit.

Molly, another lovely piece! I love the etched bead with the little red flowers. Wish I could make it to the exhibit...but distance is a small problem
