My muse has abandoned me. For me I go through these phases of being uninspired. It happens quiet frequently to be honest.
I hear a voice and he says,
Follow your bliss.
Following your bliss is tre difficult and sometimes downright
Okay, enough of that.
It has been about a two solid weeks without being in the studio. So yesterday I cleaned up the mess and was going to organize but then said to myself,
Self, you don't have time for that. Get busy and stop procrastinating.
I managed to clear off the working bench and put back together my beloved lotus bracelet. A good warm up exercise to start the morning.
Did you know that I did that? It's kind of like working out.
Need to warm up them hands Baby before diving in.
I sat there for awhile before finally deciding to finish up a piece that was in the making about a year ago.
I made this box using copper and sawed the back for a window to look through. A piece of mica was placed on the back and then the fun part began.
I sawed this voodoo doll from antique piano key. I believe they came from a piano dated late 1800s. This little guy will be joining in on the fun.
My mom says that even when I try to be scary my stuff comes out cute!
The box contains glass Mardi Gras beads that I caught sometime in the last 9 years, pins for the voodoo doll, and some brick dust for protection. I placed it on a 30" oxidized silver chain. The box is 1" in diameter and 1/4" in depth.
Closed it all up and ta-daa!
A finished relic/amulet/talisman/reliquary.
Hmmm...what am I going to do now?
Have a great Thursday everyone!
I will be trying to stay warm since it is a cool day at 22 degrees F this morning.
