It all started with an acorn button and grew from there.
In an earlier post I mentioned this button swap blog hop, that I am participating in, and how I was immediately drawn to the acorn button. Every day I would hold it in my hand, feel its essence, exam it, and then put it down. This lasted for about 2 weeks.
Then I remembered I had etched an oak tree on to brass when making buttons for my partner Kylie of Lotus Out Loud.
so begins the journey of creating something with this wonderful acorn button, which only started yesterday. Haha!
Etched brass was copper riveted to a piece of oak. Merci beaucoup Papi for finding some oak!
I am using what Jesse taught me in his workshop. It was the first time trying his technique. It worked beautifully!
The riveted brass was then captured with a piece of pierced copper.
And then the day came
when the risk to remain
tight in a bud was
more painful than the
risk to bloom.
