It's going to be small!

Every year I publish my blog in book form.  I just realized that my last post was on June 12th.  If I don't get busy, the book this year is going to be very, very, thin.

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 Front

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!

Great project, Alice! Yes, please: do post more often!

And, I think I know what you mean about simple: just about every time I've made a reversible piece with a simple design on one side and a more complex one on the other, I end up liking the simpler side better and think, "Why did I spend all that time...?". Though I am also drawn to a brief line or small nest of little metal balls tucked into the folds of these draped shapes....
