I met a former student of mine who is an artist in many ways. His name is Brian and he came up with a miniature sterling sculpture. He came to Werkstatt with his concept drawn on a pizza box and a cube hamatite. We reconstructed the sketch in sterling. It’s a silver landscape with a four leg holder for his hamatite. Pretty cool to see him again. He also works on large scale projects for for the well known Vermont sculptor David Strohmeyer. Here is a picture of what he created.

Yesterday I finished the prototype for earrings for Kara Greenblott`s Company—CBsacks (cbsacks.com). She locally produces handbags from coffee bean sacks from the local “Green Mountain Coffee Roasterie” and wanted to have some accessories made out of her leather leftovers. One side shows her leather and the other the burlap of the sacks.They are framed in sterling silver with a french hook. Many more variations will follow.
Aren’t they cool? I can’t wait to keep working on different variations of the design.
