I've been working hard on some new pieces to sell in my Etsy shop for Mother's Day. I wanted to evoke the feelings I always got when I visited my grandmother's home. She was an unbelievable gardener, and always had violets in the Springtime.
For the focal, I soldered a copper bezel to copper sheet that I etched with a wild rose pattern. Using digital collage images behind an antique Bulova watch face, I tried to evoke the colors of Springtime.
The simple 27" chain is made from hand-made copper wire-wrapped links made from Czech fire-polished glass beads in lovely shades of lavender, violet and palest blue, copper chain, and a handmade copper clasp.
** As I was writing this post, this piece sold, so check back soon for more Mother's Day pieces! **
