My newest direction is to keep it simple. (At least keep the front of the piece simple.)
I've done draped pieces in bronze and copper, but not in silver. So I finally did one in silver ....... and I like it. I kept it for myself and have been wearing it a lot.
The Back (haven't worn this side out. I like the other side too much.)
I have another simple piece that isn't finished yet as I have to figure out how I want to hang it.
So..... I may be posting a few grandchildren posts mixed in with the metal clay posts.
Need to thicken that book somehow!
