Driftwood Jewelry

These pins were also in my endless pile of slides; they are a bit out of focus, but at least I have pictures of them. I must have sold them all because I don't have them anymore. They are made of small pieces of driftwood, copper tape, and various beads. I like them...maybe I will make some more one of these days when I can get my hands on some driftwood.

The Gourds

I've been scanning all my old slides, and found a bunch of pictures of the gourd containers I used to make. They were finished with paper and painted on the inside, and the outside painted with designs and finished with polyurethane. I sold them in various craft stores in Seattle, but I had forgotten how many I actually made. Some have stems for handles, some have tassels, and some sit on small velvet cushions to keep them balanced. This is just a very small sampling...

This one was a custom design for someone in the music industry, there are several views to show all the figures.
