I am so glad that I got to use the tourmaline on such special piece. Not only is it my favorite stone it just happens to one of the birthstones for October. Perfect!!!
I can not wait to work on more of these. I want to expand on these and hopefully do some custom pieces for others. I would be happy to make various piece for people, they would supply the hair.
I am so excited by this!!

Today I had a fabulous day in the studio. I have no pictures to share :( I was so into what I was doing that I completely forgot to take any pictures. I was working on a couple custom pieces for Christmas and a piece for myself. It came out great. When I have better light I will take a picture and share. I am so excited about!! And to top it all off it was a beautiful day out today!

As I looked at the pieces from Africa and thought about it, there was no one piece that stuck out in my mind. My thoughts went to the continent as a whole. There are wars and bloodshed and the people are torn. There are sides to be taken and enemies are made. The heartache of war, the clash of people, government, and the lack of help and medicine.
It was this thought that led me to think of Africa as torn. In my piece I put two “tares” in to it, and then behind the tares I used granulation to represent the people.
