Weekly Challenge: Week 29 relic

sterling silver little guy (circa 1989?)

this is a piece I found in my silver scrap. I have had this for over 20 years. I made it while at RISD. I think it was a practice piece for a necklace I made for a friend.

Weekly Challenge: Week 27 reliquary

paperclay, thread, sterling silver wire, paint, Mexican milagro from my dad

this one took a lot of patience; between the tiny knots and the hovering cats who kept stealing my thread. but I like the effect.
