Ladysmith Link Exchange
Yesterday 14 of us got together to exchange links- a project in the works since the Winter. It took place at Peggy's house, since she is the one who organized this whole production. Thanks, Peggy!!! Still a couple of people left to finish their links, but most made it on time!! Yahoo! Here's a brief description of each link:
Sharon: 'face' polymer clay cane of a 'Ladysmith'! Set in a s.s. frame which was formed, soldered, sawed-out.
Evie: silk dye on leather, sandwiched/riveted between 2 pieces of sawed-out s.s; all a bit different 'paintings'.
Ej: Filigree silver heart, soldered; all one-of-a-kind.
Jowita: square brass tubing cut and soldered; epoxy-filled with crushed Polish amber & fossilized wood (gagat) from the Georgia Republic.
Lucia: Mixed metal that's been roller-printed, hammered, and riveted.
Sandra: s.s. that's been corrugated, formed, dapped.
Caroline: s.s. boxes that have been roller-printed, etched, and hollow-formed; all a bit different patterns and etched images.
Dana: original was granulated Argentium, cast and lab opal inlay.
Peggy: 25 long metal tubes soldered together, sliced, and powder-coated red.
Mimi: reticulated silver and grommetted.
Cindy: CAD-designed, 3-D printed, cast, enameled; several color themes.
Bodil: cast s.s., seed bead micro-mosaic.
Odaybea: cast dragonfly soldered on a square wire, wired gemstones- amethyst, spinel, garnet and more.
Brenda: X/O reversable mixed-metal, hand-cut, riveted.
Ellen K: Fine silver etched, pierced and enameled; all a bit different.
Great job everyone! Can't wait to see the rest of the links!
