The Time Traveler's Wife...

Here's a new piece that I've whipped up. I call it, "The Time Traveler's Wife." It was named after the book by Audrey Niffenegger with the same title . I think it came out very Steampunk, blending a lot of modern elements with romantic vintage components like the old brass key, filigree from Vintaj, and vintage German glass from Talisman Associates. I think the piece looks better worn, as all the counter-balances make everything hang nicely.

I love Jamie Hogsett! She's great. She's given me a couple of books that I've got on my reading list.

Thank you, Jean, for the opportunity to share a little bit of my creative process with others. It has been an honor and a pleasure and I am utterly flattered that you thought of me and included me in your interviews. Thanks again!
