No, they're not the same size.... On the top is an 18" necklace, on the bottom is a 6 3/4" bracelet. Both are based on the theme-word, "meadow". Also in the works is a crocheted shrug, and if I can find a decent green cord, there will probably be a purse.
Both will be part of my display at Condor Con's art show, Mar.3-5, 2006. The shrug, too, if I get it finished.
I live in San Diego, CA-- married with two kids, two dogs, a beta and three goldfish. Also have a lot of "plant puppies" and probably enough crafts "stuff" to stock a small store....
I've been doing "crafts" most of my life. Of course, just because I learn a new craft, doesn't mean I dropped any of the others... at least, not permanently.
My work tends to be “eclectic”—a polite way of saying “weird” in some cases. Sometimes, I will do a “series” of related projects, but, in general, no two will be exactly the same… sometimes not even both earrings in a pair…. I am drawn to large, complex structures and bright and/or contrasting colors, and will mix a variety of materials— gold and silver, glass and stone, plastic and pearls….
However, I CAN work “small” and simple, and often experiment with color and materials combinations in these simpler pieces. The ones that “turn out nice” are added to my inventory— memory wire based jewelry, hair accessories, purse charms, etc. (The others are broken down for their parts).
