Cutting through...

I have tons on the go at the bench just now...many new pieces almost there, or half-way there, most of which will find their way into the shop in time for Christmas over the next few weeks. I always like working like this...designing in advance, then feeling some things out as I go...sometimes more organic in process...

...here is a little sneak of the big rose leaf necklace I have been working on {forgive the pictures, camera lens is still rather unhappy!}...along with some pressed leaves I found in my moleskine from some months ago which will now be lovely new earrings...

Can't wait to show you them all finished!

:: I have been SERIOUSLY crushing on this video clip of Stevie Nicks. It makes me so happy :) Isn't she amazing?!

:: Ethical Uggs? Yes please! Sounds {and looks} good to me! {from Terra Planna}

:: The new pieces are now uploaded and in the SHOP - do have a look!!

Have a great evening all,

Beautiful new pieces. I love the look of the Silver and pearl. And thanks for the link to the boots, perfect little booties for this winter but damn out of stock, if only I didn't have the same size feet as 95% of the population!

cristiana said...

i've been really curious about the material you work with, it seems so easy to shape but yet so unbreakable, what is it?

love every piece*

Abigail A. Percy said...

...the material I work with is sheet Sterling Silver....the substance I carve is an ivory substitute {a polyester resin basically}....which is actually quite brittle - and not so easy to shape because of this....it can break quite easily half way through a carving!

Hope that helps answer your question Christiana :)

very well, thank you so much, and keep up with that lovely work of yours :)*
