Winter, in the great state of Georgia, is something of a let-down if, like me, you expect cold temperatures, icicles, crusted, cracked earth, and lots of snow. I find the bleak skies and balmy temperatures to be a bit of a drain on my creativity, and have to really work to get inspired.
Thankfully, I stumbled upon some gorgeous drusy agates that ignited the spark. Their tiny, sparkling crystals remind me of the frozen earth, blanketed in freshly fallen snow. As I await their arrival, and the arrival of a slew of new metalsmithing tools, I’m dreaming up some exciting new designs to reflect this sparkly season, in all of it’s chilly glory.
