Inspired by the "Charms Challenge" that my local Guild took on last winter, I began exploring more subtle forms. I began preserving delicate blossoms in fine silver to keep a tiny piece of nature close to the heart. These dried blossoms held up well to the thinned pasting technique I had been using with my larger lace forms and served as a great place to start. These open forms kept their outer surface textures and created interesting shadows on their interior. Delicate pieces demand delicate presentation, so I have moved away from my usual heavier snake chains and to these fine looped chains to maintain visual balance. With nowhere to directly stamp these fine silver forms, a tag with both my logo and the metal quality was attached to the chain. Come view them in person next weekend at the open event for Inspired Objects: Metalworking through the Ages at the Windsor Historical Society.
