Yeah, that's what I thought too until I noticed there were only seven left. That's an odd number . . . that's not right . . . so . . . there
we go - that's better.
He slowly put his guns back in his holster and headed for the door.
Who was that alien? I hope he comes back soon. sigh
Looks like I've fallen back into procrastination mode. Time to get back to the studio and make that polymer clay bracelet I promised someone!

Scrolling through their website allows you to see how extensive and diverse their work is. Each piece is exquisite!
The 2-Roses have further explored the concept and use of "found objects" in their high tech fusion "Non Conforming Series." Some of the circuit boards used in the series cost well over $5000 each to manufacture, making them far more valuable than the precious metal or gems used in any of the individual pieces. That value instantly dropped to zero when the circuitry was deemed "non-conforming". Value is reinstated in the materials by realigning the viewer's expectations and relationship with the object as adornment.

I've been in the middle of making a bracelet for a customer. And all of a sudden, for the first time, I'm having difficulty with the "new" clay. I'm hoping that when I'm done leaching, the problem will be resolved. OK, I admit, that does sound a little weird.
This weekend, I have . . . am I really saying this??? Another tournament. This time, it's my younger daughter's softball team. There will be 24 teams involved so our town will be buzzing with Tweens! And I'll be manning the snack shack! Slush anyone?
Oh, and speaking of the weekend, I'd tango for a mango (martini, that is). It's on my list of summer favorites. I highly recommend it - no affiliation, just one happy customer!

"My current work has developed from an exploration of the vast richness of the natural world. Leaves, shells, stones, seeds, bones become the jewels in a wearable piece intended as an object of contemplation. Each fragment is remarkable. All are connected by systems and relationships that underlie the importance of the natural world on our lives and spirits."
