Make Art!

Jan 4, 2011

I love these two little words. I have a wonderful cheerleader for a friend. She always sends me email filled with words like you can do it yes you can… I know you can… etc. She is the best and SHE is SUPER TALENTED too. She LOVES flowers and always signs her blog posts with “make art!” I love that.

Late last night while I was looking at her blog I thought I would make her a little something to give to her at CHA. I soldered this flower pin several months ago and it’s been sitting on a shelf collecting dust. Actually, I have lots of stuff sitting on my shelves collecting dust. So I’ve decided to start sharing them with friends and family as well as in class participants. My sweet friend is first up as a recipient.

I stamped “make art” on a sterling silver piece, took a ball peen hammer to it and attached some rhinestones using E6000. I then attached the jump rings and a crystal chandelier piece (barely peeking out from behind the flower) to the stamped piece and attached this to the back of the pin. So now my sweet cheerleading friend has a unique flower pin with her signature attached.

I hope she likes it…

Last night, it was fun to make art!

P.S. You know who you are and I thank you for all your kind words of encouragement.
