A few weeks ago I swapped some of my polymer pieces and sent them on the long journey to Denmark & Germany. Last week my mailbox was stuffed with the most beautiful art.
From Dorthe, this fantastic driftwood angel (already hanging on the wall in my studio).
As a special surprise she also included one of her hanging collages. Dorthe, you are too generous! I am amazed by both pieces, they have such wonderful detail.
I have been reading Dorthe's blog for the last year and have really enjoyed watching her creative process. Every detail is tended to ...just look at her packaging ... a hand stamped organza bag, wonderful old lace/paper, and really sweet wire wrapped beads. Of course I saved it all for who knows where and when I can use it next.
From Renate, an incredibly talented mixed media jewelry artist whom I admire (and probably emulate more than I should admit too)...I got to hand pick one of her hand stamped copper/resin focal pendants. In addition, she surprised me with a sari ribbon/resin charm and perfectly coordinated beads. I cannot wait to assemble this into my very own necklace... already envisioning all the copper wire wrapping I have ahead of me.Unfortunately that fun will have to wait until at least next week since I'm trying to finish up an online class at the moment (more about that later) .
