i've been turning my full attention to the two amazing outdoor handmade events i'll be vending at this summer. lately, i've been working very closely with a master jeweler at creating molds of some specimens that have been in my collection, as well as new pieces of fauna i've been gathering for the new line of cast fauna that i'll have completed for the art star craft bazaar , this may 15 & 16. i recently found this replica screech owl skull and am in awe of it's incredible detail and beauty. it's headed towards a new life as a huge cocktail ring. it will also be woven into neck adornments and anything else i can dream up. secondly is the amazing bumble bee. it must have flown into my room and passed away, having landed near my writing desk in this exact state. two years ago i had a strange occurrence happen with a bird around the same time and i can't but help take this as an omen that i'm working towards & moving along the right path. look for these pieces in my etsy shop over the next few weeks!
