Wilde Wednesday

I'm starting my first blog just as my computer fan is giving it's last gasp so I will no doubt be gone for a few days while it's being repaired.

In the meantime I wanted to post a pic of the newest cuff....When I decided to make it on "hair-on" cowhide I was stumped as to where to find it but then had an "AHA!" moment and looked on Ebay.
Sure enough a company offered scrap pieces and I bought, expecting to receive small 'scrap' pieces.
What I got were very large pieces in many colors so now I can make a full-size patchwork cow if I want. Maybe bead the horns?
Sugar, my cockatoo, is coming back home today from "birdie camp" where she stayed while I was in Charleston, SC doing the Southeastern Wildlife Exposition. This is a beautiful high-end show where I used to exhibit my oil paintings of big-game wildlife and it was my first time back as a jewelry designer. So great to see Charleston again, reunite with old friends and have wonderful seafood every day.....mmmmmm.
