“...the winter is kind and leaves red berries
on the boughs for hungry sparrows...”
~ John Geddes, A Familiar Rain
Winter Berries, necklace
Sally Russick of The Studio Sublime threw down a challenge in January because "winter was slowly seeping into her veins and sucking the creativity right out".
To create a beautiful piece of jewelry inspired by winter.
Since winter in Massachusetts is cold and grey I knew my piece would be made from steel wire with a pop of color. I've hand formed the wire, then wrapped, hammered, brush finished and waxed it to create winter twigs. Recycled red glass berries are "snow-capped" with silver plated bead caps.
Here in the Northeast we're behind on snow fall, but we've been told that we've got a doozy of a snow storm headed our way. I'm actually a little bit excited! Time to make homemade soup, bake something yummy and tuck in for this fabulous blog hop!
