And now for something different...

 I finally have something I can show you. I have been working on things, but nothing I was able to show you yet. Yesterday, I finished these earrings - copper, brass heishis, bone and antler tips. They are fairly long and have a lot of movement.


As in - the bottom part will turn round and round.
Trying some new things - working with different materials - trying to get a different look.


We will see how this progresses.

Different but grand Renate! So beautiful. You are doing something amazing here. Love the idea of movement

lunedreams said...

WOW!! those are a departure for you--much edgier, with a more architectural, geometric feel. and sort of ethnic! but still with that natural feeling because of the materials. LOVE them!! love the "engineering"! (it would be cool to see a little video of them swinging in a breeze...) Can't wait to see more!!

You nailed these, Renate! They are wonderfully, different! I would be way out of my comfort zone with these materials. Can't wait to see more.

I'm loving this "new" look Hermanita!!! Actually I can see you hidden in them. Everything you touch has an ethereal, fantasy and feminine feel. You have the rare gift of being able to capture a woman's dreams of a romantic world. And for that I'm always thankful and in total awe!!

Has Spring started to peek out from her hiding place yet??? hang in there I just know she'll be bursting out soon!!

Renate, you really can make magic with just about any component you put in your talented hands. These are stunning!

Barry said...

R-always a pleasure to visit another creator who uses copper, brass etc. The design and worked metal in these earrings have resulted in a unique pair. Look forward to seeing more of your work. B

Liebe Renate,

zu Deinen neuen Ohrringen werde ich Dir in meiner nächsten Nachricht auch noch ausführlicher schreiben.
Aber erst mal muß ich jetzt auf die Knie gehen und mich tief verbeugen vor diese Ohrringen, die mich nicht nur berühren, sondern geradezu schütteln. Galaktisch sind die. Wow.

Palimpa Lim said...

Ach so, ja, ähm.... MEINE! Ha!
