Over the years I've kept this blog, I've posted when we've add to our little "family." Just a day ago, we brought home another Aussie to join our two older girls. Let me introduce Keiko, shown here with tow of her litter-mates as she was getting ready to come home with us. Her name is a Japanese girl's name that translates as "happy child, rejoicing." This is indeed one happy, playful pup, and we're all enjoying getting to know her and watch as our group makes
modifications to give her room to grow and fit in.
Of course, this is my creations blog, so I thought I'd show you a couple of pairs of earrings I just finished. They obviously have nothing to do with the puppy, they're just earrings, but shouldn't each posting have some polymer in it?
The blue pair on the left have a thin gold plated bar that swings back and forth as you walk. This is the first time I've used something like these bars in earrings. All the patterns were made using Mokume Gane technique with gold leaf inside the layers. There is a quite a sparkle to the gold, it just doesn't show well in the photos.
