Dawn of the Wed

 I'm a fan of colour on metal and my friend Katie's Halloween wedding was the perfect excuse to try out a satiny black patina. I introduced a polished pewter version a while back for more traditional brides. The black changes the mood completely, making it the perfect accessory for an elegant gothic or nighttime wedding. I'm thinking a black birdcage veil and some blood-agate earrings would make this thing (coincidentally, already made!)

Thank you for letting me make your wedding jewelry, Katie!

A Departure

This past week I was commissioned to make a belt buckle to commemorate a 50th birthday. The recipient: a proud Tex-Irish Cowboy! The buckle incorporated his initials and important emblems, and sports a nice antiqued finish...kind of like the man himself ;) Happy 50th Bart!
