HEARTS BEATING


My desire to once again pound and torch and manipulate metal into something uniquely my own  has again taken hold and I have been busy this past week, making these earrings...with a bit of art to share later in the week. Of all the pieces I make, these type of earrings I think are my favorite. There are so many layers of involvement , which means a lot of work, but it means I made something that no one else has, at least not exactly, and that I am happy with. I like the messiness to get to the end, the noisiness, the physicalness, the pounding, the torch, the injury or two, (minor!). I like the shabby and bling together, the stones, the words, the most of the part you can't see, but I hope with all hope, you can feel, the emotion.





Thank you for visiting and listening to my ramblings....I hope I can listen to yours! Hope your week is off to a great start!

AMAZING! I love hearing your description of what you LOVE about making these! I feel the same way, although I am not as brave about the "injury" part! lol!
Your newest creation is totally fab! The copper edges are incredible. I have no idea how you did that.
I am so glad you truly enjoyed the process
Hugs,
Terri
