These are from a mold of a fossilized ammonite. I'm always surprised by how much the bronze shrinks and the colors.
You can't see the detail on this one. I'll need to brush it up to bring out the highlights.
The next two are the new tear-aways that I made. They are tracings from ancient coins. Love the crack in the first one.
This is a mold from an African piece that I picked up at Bead Fest in Santa Fe. Scroll down to the March 20th entry to see the original.
Smaller pieces for earrings from the coin tear-aways.
Cain Park Arts Festival
I have been letting my mail pile up all week. Late...really late... last night I shifted through it and saw a response from one of the shows I had applied to. I was accepted into the Cain Park Arts Festival in July. WOO HOO. I told Lou this morning. His comment...."You've hit the big time". Now I have to get serious about production.
