>This past holiday, I used fresh figs in a couple of dishes an even candied them as a decoration. I think that a sliced fig has the prettiest color combination, so I used enamel to reinvent it’s gorgeous tones.
This set is on my Bullfinch and Barbury Etsy shoppe — please stop by and peruse my listings.
I am a bit of a visual texture freak, and though many of my pieces don’t have loads of dimensional texture, this bracelet has both. I called these bracelets Berries because they look like a little stumbled-upon food cache from a finch or a squirrel.
This one was a really interesting saffron orange and transparent crimson dappled appearance on the shank of the bracelet . . . the berries are left as brushed copper.
Here’s my mom’s hand again . . . modeling it while drinking a cup of tea. For more details about this Berries bracelet, check out my Etsy shoppe.
This was a bracelet that I made for me! And now look . . . it’s on Etsy! I made another bracelet that is now my very own (in B&B’s colors: turquiosey teal and carmine red).
I called it Painterly . . . because the ghostly poetry that is stamped into the metal has been slipped under a veil of periwinkle enamel. You could stop and read the words, but they are present more for an impression– like a line of poetry whispered in your ear.
1. of, pertaining to, or characteristic of a painter.
2. Fine Arts. characterized by qualities of color, stroke, or texture perceived as distinctive to the art of painting, esp. the rendering of forms and images in terms of color or tonal relations rather than of contour or line.
One of my dad’s antique statues was obliging enough to model my Painterly bracelet . . . and so was my cousin, Elisabeth!
This bangle actualy has a sister bracelet in a smaller size. Check this bracelet out on my Bullfinch and Barbury Etsy.
