Silver Will Be Under The Tree

This year I had the best booth neighbor at the One of A Kind show. Allow me to introduce you to Sue McNenly. We laughed and talked during any quiet moments and naturally we watched each others booths if any quick breaks were needed.

Sue's work with precious metal clay is so unique and beautiful it is no wonder she was accepted into the show. She calls her pieces "wee, whimsical, fine jewelery silver vignettes." Each framed piece has a hand written title and once you see one vignette you have to stay in her booth until you read all her titles. I immediately zeroed in on her necklaces. She has turned some of the sculptured dressed into wearable pieces. You might have noticed a little dog on the dress on the first picture. I was so happy to see she made one into a necklace.
I asked Santa for it for Christmas. I have been looking for something to commemorate the arrival of our puppy Magnus and this is it. I can't wait for Christmas morning!
