Hi everyone! It's been a while hasn't it?
I have been keeping myself busy with getting settled into RHINO for the
past month and a half.
I've made new spinner rings...
|Silver, bronze, and hand stamped|
new Mandala Earrings...
|Silver, scraffito, enamel, coconut, brass, copper rivet|
And my newest piece was inspired by the Queen of Mictlan.
|Silver, copper rivets, bone, antique roofing copper, hand stamped|
but today I am feeling very sad.
I am making a piece for the upcoming Upcycle Show
I have been thinking about the 43 missing students of
Their memory is what is inspiring me for the piece that will go in the show.
And here is what I gathered up from the shelves and boxes in my studio...
I had old sheet of copper, bullet casings, wood, and nails.
My heart feels very heavy right now and the pieces are on my bench waiting for me to continue
I'm too disturbed.
But I will force myself to go in there right now and finish.
They say one can't force creating. Maybe force is not the correct word but I don't know what else to call it. I know once I enter that room something will happen.
I leave you with a link to one of my friends blog. Her poem speaks to me. Especially right now. It is called known and unkown.
Tis' all for now.
