Holding on to the last of the summer days…
Just a few snippets from around here this summer!
Flower that is. Long a summer favorite of mine, and giving this a go has on my ‘to-do’ list for ages. Cross that off. All hand-fabricated, large passion flower and vine jointed bracelet in sterling silver with amethyst center stone. price on request. Midsummer note: first firefly of the season spotted 6-20, 8:37PM, backyard. :)
It’s just getting started.
Each year the ephemeral peony is again wondrous and one of a kind. Even lovely in the end as a memory of their former beauty.
Sure feels like summer today, complete with tiny bespoke sunflower, ready to go. I better get to work on my listings for this little flowers big brothers (see a sample in the background) before summer arrives for real!
Trailing chimes bracelet, recycled from silverplate flatware handles, with handmade bangle & chain, gem embellished.
This month was the buckeye butterfly, Junonia coenia (see the calendar photo at the end of the post). I’ve drew a super simple, graphic representation of the bold coloration of the species and two fluttered off my bench. August will soon be a memory… butterflies can last forever.
From this summer’s potted garden.
The July butterfly is the red-spot jezebel… see the calendar page photo for my 2016 butterfly project (one butterfly each month as they appear on the calendar. Mine perches sideways in copper and silver on a delicate silver band, size 8. High summer is underway, lots of fluttering going on!
