Pass the Peas Please

My husband has been telling me that I need to make some more pea necklaces. I finally did some with a new twist of enameling the pods with my torch fired enamel.

Mixed Media Work

I did a little painting based on a sketch that I did a couple of years ago. The original was in graphite and I copied it and attached it to a canvas and painted over it along with some background painting and stamping with a stamp that I carved. The words were printed on the computer and then cut out and glued on and enhanced with white gel pens. Then I photographed it and applied a filter in Photoshop.

Proverbs 31:10-31

10Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.

11The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil.

12She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life.

13She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands.

14She is like the merchants’ ships; she bringeth her food from afar.

15She riseth also while it is yet night, and giveth meat to her household, and a portion to her maidens.

16She considereth a field, and buyeth it: with the fruit of her hands she planteth a vineyard.

17She girdeth her loins with strength, and strengtheneth her arms.

18She perceiveth that her merchandise is good: her candle goeth not out by night.

19She layeth her hands to the spindle, and her hands hold the distaff.

20She stretcheth out her hand to the poor; yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy.

21She is not afraid of the snow for her household: for all her household are clothed with scarlet.

22She maketh herself coverings of tapestry; her clothing is silk and purple.

23Her husband is known in the gates, when he sitteth among the elders of the land.

24She maketh fine linen, and selleth it; and delivereth girdles unto the merchant.

25Strength and honour are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come.

26She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness.

27She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness.

28Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her.

29Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all.

30Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the LORD, she shall be praised.

31Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates.

 

A Bit Of Experimentation

I have run out of stones that I like so I experimented with a domed circle of copper and the torch fired enamels. I’m pleased with how it came out and I think that I will do some more similar ones. I had fun with the colors as you can see.

Test Driving

Whenever I finish a new piece of jewelry, I have to test drive it even if I just wear it around the house. I try to make sure that it is comfortable, that nothing falls apart, or pokes in your skin. This one passed the test.

This piece is for sale at Heart and Hands in Franklin on Main Street.

Blast From the Past

This is a chair that I painted for a friend approximately 20 years ago. She brought it back to me for a touch of because it had gotten worn and had some peeling from moisture that had gotten on it. It was so interesting to see something I had painted that long ago…like seeing an old friend.
