early morning sky, another (!) amulet and some kitty love

When I got up this morning - this is what the sky looked like. Immediately had to get my camera.



This is another amulet I worked on yesterday. Sterling silver fused with a copper wire spiral. Haven't decided yet whether to attach a leather cord or go with beads...

 


Every once in a while my kitties will come by and say hello (they are very busy now that the weather is hot - you know - the sleeping in the flower beds and under shrubs kind of busy).



Captain - a little crazy, but such a cuddly guy!


Socks - she is such a sweet little girl.

Süß, Deine Zwei! Und das Amulett ist wundervoll. Und ich glaube, ich würde Leder nehmen. Das passt wunderbar zu der Kraft, die das Amulett ausstrahlt.

Your new amulet is perfect dear Ren ! I really love the way you combo sterling silver with copper, very nice ! And the patina is gorgeous, so soft.

Nice job with the amulet! Design is lovely...as always.

Cats are so wonderful...we have 5! So we know about the switch in summer routines. They spend more time outdoors than in. Yours are two beauties!! Love the striping on Captain.

A post filled with eye candy. First that sky, then your beautiful new amulet and lastly your gorgeous kitties! They remind me of ramses, who loves lounging outside under bushes in the heat. The hotter the better... Love, Silke
