As you’ve probably noticed, I have changed the design of my blog. I wanted something a little less cluttered and I love the footer widget this theme has. Let me know what you think.
I also found out yesterday that I am one of the artists who will be featured in the Adjacencies exhibition at the Sharadin Art Gallery at Kutztown University. The exhibition runs from September 9th – October 10th. (That’s 9/9 – 10/10 hehe)
And yesterday I made a new necklace. I’ve wanted to do a layered pendant with floating rivets like I used in my first Super Bowl, Tortuga. I thought about it when I was making my medallion series, but it was difficult without using the awesome tube cutting jig I now have to get the tubing to be the same length. I used left over pieces from some other projects as the main elements in this piece. The nickel piece is from Oridon, my second Super Bowl, and the brass disk is from a medallion that I had worked on, but that I didn’t like the chain and so never featured it. I loved the colors the brass turned with the torch patina, and this piece has been sitting on my bench taunting me for a while. I love the way it turned out and I like the way the rubber cord slides through the cutout corners on the nickel. And it looks heavy, but feels really light!
Finally, I have a guest post coming up tomorrow (Wednesday 4/28) on the Fly HIA Blog. It’s part of the Lady Travel Talk series. Make sure to check it out. Let me know what you think about this pendant and the new layout of Hammermarks. I love to get feedback from you guys.
