As a child, I was greatly impressed by Pippi Longstocking, particularly by the wonders that she pulled out of her magical chest of drawers. I’ve collected small treasures for years. It’s reached the point where storage has become a problem. I’m not saying I’m a hoarder. I can still see the floor except when I’m dealing with paperwork. But I decided last year that I had enough treasures that I could release some of them into the world.
These are the three most recent pieces I’ve made that were inspired by items from my collection. I’ve had so much fun designing and building them. This was the basis for the class I just taught at the Idyllwild Arts Summer Program. I will be teaching this workshop several times at different venues in the next six months. I’m working on my class schedule now and will post it tomorrow.
Love these Jonna, are they pendants? Made with metal clay? Info please….I have a hoard of little treasures also and may just need to take this class.
Thanks so much for your lovely note!!! Yes, the pendants are made with silver metal clay. They are so much fun to create. I’ll keep you posted on my class schedule. I can’t believe you’re even thinking about it when you’re so busy getting ready for Metal Clay by the Bay!!! Can’t wait to see you!!! Big hugs!!!
Just gorgeous to see your treasures dressed beautifully with your metal clay design skills!
Thank you, Ruth!!! Miss you and hope to see you soon!!!
What I love about these is how your precise metal clay skills have taken on casual elegance that make the pieces look carefree. Only a true artist and master can achieve that.
Wow, Susan! Thank you so much!!! Hope to see you soon!!!
