A few Charms

I haven't done a charm swap in ages, so I thought this would be fun. The heart is made of clay and is smaller than those candy conversation hearts. Probably the smallest thing I have ever made in clay. They were fired and given a stone finish, all a little different. The other charm is a glass car fuse that I took apart and put in a bit of vintage old German bible text. I then gave it a gunmetal finish so that it wasn't so new and shiny looking. I actually had more fun making up the little cards to mount them on than the charms themselves! That was a nice brief break, but now back to "The Exquisite Corpse Project" and designing new Vessel collages. I have so many new designs in the works... can't wait to share them.

Hi Ingrid,
I am so glad you commented on my blog, because it brought me to yours which is STUNNING! I love that you noticed that my face linocuts are 'nearly' mirror images of each other. Very perceptive - they are portraits of my best friend and me - she is black and I am white, her hair is curly and mine is straight, she used bright wild colours and mine are more restrained. We are very similar, but we celebrate our differences and the faces I made are about that. That's also why we face each other in the picture.
Look forward to catching up on your website.
