One more key necklace....I know... I suppose I am a little obsessed with the keys, but sometimes the addition of a key just makes the piece. As many of you know I love to etch, it is a love hate thing, the loving part taking precedent. Any whoooo...this piece also had some Verdigris patina applied and it just made the etch pop. It really is a fun process! Miss Ficklemedia offers a great tutorial on applying patinas, check it out!
Shift Lock is an assemblage of vintage rosary beads, antique brass chain links, vintage typewriter key and an antique key.
It has been a rough week, besides working like a crazy lady getting ready for my best show of the season lots of other things have come up. My dear mother-in-law was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, we were shocked to learn this sad news. She lives in Connecticut so the distance will make it more difficult for us, but a 2 hour plane ride is easy to do. I too got some bad news, a diagnosis of Malignant Melanoma. I had something removed from my leg and the outcome was not as we hoped. Needless to say I have had lots rolling around in my head. I will be having additional surgery very soon on my leg to get clear margins on where the cancer is. I think that is all one person can handle for the week...I am looking forward to the show, it will surely keep my mind occupied. The weekend is upon us, I hope you all have a great one!
