Okay, I admit this tickles me
As you may know (Bob), when I’m not writing I like to make jewelry, particularly chainmail and wire-wrapped pieces. I know from experience that it’s always kind of a crapshoot when you make a piece as a surprise for someone — you can try your best but sometimes you don’t get the size right, it’s the wrong color, it’s just not something the person really likes, etc.
So I was very pleased this morning to wake up to pictures of the delightful and talented Colby Keller wearing the wire-wrapped malachite amulet necklace I made for him earlier this year. I feel the green of the malachite goes very well with the hazard orange of his hat, plus seeing my work on a torso that in itself is a work of art — yeah, Christmas came a little early this year.
