The team over at Objects and Elements is having a closure challenge, so I used this opportunity to work in a new closure and some other things I've been meaning to try. I ordered some of their sari silk recently, and was dying to use it. I combined that with a patinaed and stamped copper piece that I made, also set some eyelets in, then got out the torch, burned some ball ends on brass and sterling and wrapped it all together. It's strange how I can go from stitching( so quiet!), to hammering and torching and it all makes me so happy!!
When I saw the silk, it immediately reminded me of the prayer flags in Nepal. I have never been there, but my brother traveled there a few years ago and has a beautiful collection of photos...someday I hope to post some of those.
I would like to propose a challenge for all of us, a non tangible challenge, and never ending, but not always so easy,.......... let's all try to live by this word!!
