I snuck a little bit of time yesterday afternoon, in between taking in a discussion about raptors at the arboretum and popcorn and movie time in the basement, to do a little work with my fingers.
The other day I had cut a little nugget of that chokecherry wood, sanded it smooth, then rubbed it with beeswax and tung oil, to be ready to become a necklace. I did a little sewing, a lichen-inspired garden of sorts, on a small bit of wool and fit it inside the wood and strung it up on leather.
I cut this piece of wood so I could keep this little inclusion on the side. It looks like a prehistoric fish to me, which I totally dig. (naturally)
I'll be putting this little garden in my shop on Wed. of this coming week, along with just a few other pieces I've been working on. More to come.
Have a good and restful Sunday, everyone.
