new addition to my nasturtium collection!

by kim on 1 October 2013

A few weeks ago I put my stump to use in the studio. 

I dapped away to prepare for some new enameled jewels.

After I fired some pieces I realized I matched my soon to be necklaces and earrings. 
Happy accident or do I just have colors I simply love?

View of my soldering bench. I returned to solder some posts to these lovely new pieces. 
[new day, new vans!]

A family of Parisian blue nasturtium earrings were born.

And a necklace too!

Won't you visit my shop to see these lovely blue beauties. I am thinking this is the color for autumn! What else compliments a nice rusty orange or marigold? A complimentary blue is my answer!

happy tuesday!
xo, kim

It was one heck of a great birthday present. I plan on setting some files flush in the stump so I can hammer sheet over them and get a nice texture. After I find some good used ones I will get out the hammer and chisel.

Nice looking stump you got yourself there. I got a new on a year ago when a friend cut down a large black locust tree in central Phoenix. I had an outdoor stump but not one for inside, much needed for my larger stakes, a very handy item instead of the bench top for all kinds of heavy duty hitting and forming.
Well the heat is finally about to have a big break here in Southern Arizona and fall may actually be around the bend. I may stick my head outside to some much needed work on the place and trim some trees and rake up some weeds for our past monsoon season, fall is such a treat here as it cools down towards our short winter and then spring comes again.
