First off, I know I haven't properly introduced you two yet,
but I have a new assistant:
She talks funny.
Her english accent and my southern accent mingle and
The Monkey is now talking in strange dialects.
She won't let me photograph her today to show her off . . .
She says her hair isn't properly "boofy."
Tuesday when she's here again, she promises to come ready and boof-ified.
Today is her birthday.
We celebrated with a tiny cake and some coffee.
(A fancily customized cake . . . with her name scrawled in the icing.)
In other news . . .
I only have two pieces completed for you.
In all honesty, I didn't feel much up to making this week.
Although I began some others last night that I am VERY excited about.
They will be posted Monday.
The first is this ring,
a slightly different take on an old favorite of mine.
Brass. Sterling. Leaves and beading work.
A Wintry Blossom.
Then there's this . . . thing.
A Sugar Skull necklace.
Silhouetted and more delicate in her hollowed state.
Actually, a bit of a mistake made into a deliberate design.
Sterling and Brass.
(The pictures don't show it well . . . but the filigree in the hair is brass,
as are a few of the spheres along her hairline.)
A signature button style clasp, hallmark tag, and
branding button provide proof that this is a real Rosy.
Two delicate heart halves dangle down . . .
a bit of fringe.
It's all in the details.
And I am absolutely stunned at the tshirt response.
Five are en route right now . . .
That's over a fifth of what I had ordered!
Thank you all so much again for the support.
Off to finish my other pieces.
Everyone wish Charlie a Happy Birthday!
And have a lovely weekend.
