The next three pair of earrings are "Southern" subjects!! I love the bend of Palm Trees...the straight Palm works because of the slender shape of the rectangle but I do love the curves you find in many Palms in the South, especially the old trees. Some of them in the islands are bent do low that their tops almost touch the sand.
I use a chisel to represent water and my swirley stamp works for a sun or moon....at least it does for me!!!
Herons are great birds to draw. They have such a distinctive form. For those of you not knowing how I make these shapes...I draw them and cut them out of sheets of silver...one at a time with my trusty jeweler's saw and a very fine saw blade.
This stone is an Agate, and a very large one at that! It's a "statement" piece for sure. Not subtle or shy....but then my preferred style of jewelry and painting is Bold...those of you that know me can agree, I'm sure!
