While I was working on steampunk pendants I wanted to put a little more meaning into this little art piece. Maybe a thought or message. Keeping in mind that with this one I only had one inch square to work in. No way would I be able to rubber stamp any words longer than two letters. This really limits my choices in English.
In my stash of rubber stamps I have a secret weapon. One that will help me convey what good vibes I was concentrating on while making the pendant…muahahaha…Chinese characters!
This one is Happiness. The copper of the finding and purple compliment each other, add the sparkle and shine from the watchworks. I’m good with this. – T
Today I think I’m finally back home. It was a long weekend for me, being away and all. I went to CHA (Craft and Hobby Assoc.) Trade Show from early last Saturday to late Monday night! For me, it’s a long time to be away from my family and home. I originally thought I was just going up for a day to help my friend Ellie…HA! As it got closer I found out it was 3 days, 2 nights and at the Los Angeles Convention Center. Plus, I was the one driving!
We were demonstrating what could be done with the products from Amate Studios. Here are a few things I made before we left. It was a lot of fun at the booth showing people from all over the world their findings, glaze and our artwork! Amate Studio’s products made our art look great!
Thank you Armando, Jason and Ellie, I am grateful for having the opportunity and pleasure of working with all of you. – Tina
