New Charm Masters

These are new pieces, some still waiting to have the final finishing touches added to them, that need to be cast. Looks like this next year I will have a jump on new charm designs. All the masters are made in copper and then cast into sterling or white bronze. White bronze has been an interesting material to work with; very similar to silver yet it has a slight yellowish cast to it that reminds me of old ethiopian coin silver. I also like red bronze but do not have much finished work in it yet. Other new pieces not pictured here that are mailing to the caster tomorrow. I should have new designs finished for both Tucson and lots more for Bead & Button in June.

Oh, how beautiful! I saw at least three that I would love to have. I'll have to get out to your place and look at your charms, as well as your paintings. Your Christmas gift should arrive before the end of the year and knowing how much you like chocolate, you should love as well.
