embossed metal charms (part 2)


I actually finished this on MLK day .... thinking all the time about the quote I keep at the top of my page


the paper beads are made using the dictionary definition of metamorphosis
... an accident?
I didn't plan it that way ...
but no, not an accident either.


and here is some growth at the base of my tree


the metamorphosis continues, in spite of everything.

Oh my that is pretty - I love the gold and silver together - the dominoes look hanging from the charm. I have an idea in my head for a hubcap and beads. Maybe some day I'll do it. You inspire me to flesh it out a bit more.
