The other day, I was hanging out in my studio, and ended up reorganizing my ever-growing stash of found items and junk so I can have somewhat of a system and won’t waste time looking for something. Going through all these things is rather inspiring. As I sorted out leaf pendants, jump rings, earrings, chains, brooches, and other assorted doodads, I found numerous ideas. I found stuff for making a large, crown-wearing cat, and a dragonfly, and perhaps a number of other critters. One thing on my immediate to-do list is a cow. I found embellishments that should work beautifully. As I continued to sort through my stuff, I came upon two matching gold pendants, and immediately could picture a proper, fancy little dog. So, I stopped reorganizing my stuff (eh…it’s good enough 😉 ) and immediately began to sculpt.
This is what came of it.
– Made with 16 gauge and 19 gauge dark annealed wire, and black jewelry wire for details and connecting stuff.
– Measures 3 inches tall by 3 1/2 inches long by 1 1/4 inch wide.
– Materials used include gold pendants for ears, and a hot pink chain taken from a pair of groovy earrings for the collar, with a silver pendant for the little bauble on the collar. (Note that when I mention gold and silver in the embellishments, I mean color only – I can’t afford the real stuff! 🙂 )
Thanks for looking. 🙂
