Envergure (wingspan) with a soldered stone bead.
I like how the patina solder changed the look of this focus bead.
I admit that I am terrible at replying to comments. There is the best of intentions that errodes away with the day. That is not saying I don't value and appreciate every single comment and love to hear from everyone. So I thought I would try something new and reply to some comments within the body of blog posts. Not that I will probably get every comment covered and I certainly don't want to hurt any feelings if I don't. I also thought it would be a good place to answer questions.
so here goes:
Sarah - no I don't have a brother but if I did, it would be so incredible to have one as talented as the Chainsaw Kitten guy.
Olivia - thanks for "getting" me, it is nice to know that someone does
Cheryl and Leslie - thank you for all the years of loyal blog reading and comments, it means a lot to me
To leave you with a bit of funny.
I ask, "is this the ugliest lamp ever or maybe just oddly inspired"?
I wonder who it was that thought, "I must have a gold lamp with a nearly life sized young boy chugging away on a jug of wine and then my living room decor will be complete".
Never mind that he seems to have lost a shoe in this wine theme lamp debackle. So maybe it's a big jug of water but that said doesn't make this lamp more pleasant.
The store tag said "with original shade". I guess it may be hard to find a shade for this lamp and the original shade would be essential.
