Since I am still working on the first springtime prehnite collection preview, (some photos, perhaps tomorrow?! 🌿✨) I thought I would share one of my favorite art prints. Several years ago (maybe 10??), I bought this print by @courtneybrims, and I have loved it dearly all these years. It was one of the very first things I purchased when the fella and I moved into our first apartment together. It has hung above my bench in every metalsmithing studio I have worked in. This stag with the little pink blossoms in his antlers is dear to me, as an old friend. Who are some of your favorite artists (any kind) on Instagram? I would love to fill my feed with even more unique, authentic creators. (Just leave their name without the @ if you dont want to “ping” them. I will search for ‘em!)
🌿 Mossflower Collection 🌿 Hammers are swinging and coping saws are biting! I have been happily coaxing ferns and new leaves out of metal for a few weeks now, and I have a question for you. 🌿 Would you like to see designs as I finish them? This collection is going to have about fifteen separate designs with 3-5 pieces in each design in various sizes. I am thinking of revealing designs as I finish them, though it will be a bit of a wait before the collection goes live. (I don’t have a shop update date yet.) Or would you rather see everything all at once? 🌿 Please let me know below!
I am in midst of creating this year’s iteration of my annual “Mossflower Collection,” and I wanted to ask you guys a question. Tell me what you would like to see most in this collection: necklaces, statement rings, dangle earrings, or cuff bracelets. I would love to know! I am currently coaxing a year’s worth of sketches to manifest in silver, but I would love to hear what you’d like to see.
Ferns are beginning to sprout up around my bench, and the moss on my forging stump is happily soaking up this snow-melting rain. Spring is so near, which brings my annual prehnite and fern collection. This will be the third year I have done this collection (the photo above is from last year’s bounty) and I have jumped into this year’s iteration with husk-cracking, ground-swelling fervour! I cant wait to show you everything. 🌿Mossflower Collection: TBD 🌿
