Apogee ~ Homage to Pluto

A hearty hello from the road!
 I penned this post back in Alaska on a cool and rainy day after a damp blueberry picking expedition and I imagine at this time of publication I may be enjoying cool Maine breezes by the bay after our road trip from Michigan to Maine. I will have gone on a  search for different blues on our Leland Blue slag glass finding trip on Lake Michigan with our LoveRoot Nikki Zehler.
 I jumped on the bandwagon of designing with amazing jasper stone sticks after spotting this pair at the Tucson Gem and Mineral show. I think they are Dendritic Sonoran Jasper and since I live in the Sonoran Desert part of the year it was fitting that I acquire some.
I paired them with some ever so slightly mismatched sized lampwork rounds of mine that I would be hard pressed to replicate. I write little to nothing down when I'm creating, such is my muse.

While I could have brought down the shine of the copper wire (22 gauge) I found I enjoyed the brightness with this combination.
These are the first I've made of this sort with stone sticks. I think I could get addicted to designing this style.
Thanks for looking!

    1. Thanks, Kristi, It's been fun working with these stones.

  2. Those stone sticks are gorgeous! They look like ancient painted murals. I love the embellishment you used and pairing with the luminous lampwork. Enjoy the day! Erin
