First fall inspiration

I just wanted to thank all of you for your sweet and inspiring comments on my wing necklaces. I am humbled by your generous praise. Thank you so very much!!

Those bright red rose hips out in the garden has gotten me inspired. Not that I have totally let go of those last summer days (in fact, I have something in the works right now), but the rose hips called out to me.
And this bracelet just happened.



Sponge coral, picasso jasper, serpentine, citrine, calcite, glass and copper. With a length of extra chain, this would also look good as a necklace.

Got to get back to some wings...

This is so perfect for fall, Renate! You hit the colors right on. ANd the way you have the beads set it looks just like the wild rose hips around here. Wonderful piece...you do such grand work as ever.

Thanks for the kind words on my still life, Renate. Seems like fewer folks are dropping by now that I'm no longer doing mixed media, but rather devoting myself strictly to painting. It's always cheering to get your happy thoughts!
