Birthdays and Just Because gifts

A brass cuff I made for Lisa, one of my favorite people in all the world.  It's hand written and etched with the quote by Nelson Mandela made famous by Marianne Williamson and framed by wire wrapping sparkly beads and lined in thin, soft suede.

This piece was a request and I made it with particular influence inspired.  I hope she likes what I created for her.

A birthday gift for a dear friend with the same quote by Nelson Mandela written out on aged muslin, rolled and tucked away in a soldered vessel made from copper pipe and metal ephemera.  It was presented as a necklace worn long.

A small brass cuff with an old watch face embellished with a pewter heart and hot pink glass glitter resined inside and wired onto the cuff for my 8 year old beautiful grand daughter.  I'm not sure she got it but maybe some day she'll appreciate altered art.  She's very artistic, so hopefully she'll see the elements that were put together for this piece.  It was sweet and tiny and I love when I can create with purpose.  It makes all the difference.
