It had just turned to spring when I was working on projects for the book. In my neighborhood you MIGHT see an occassional dandelion, but most people prefer not to have them.
I am a real pushover for the underdog in any situation and was determined to find a yard full of them to photograph. After driving around town, I discovered that a local school yard was covered in them!
Most projects in the book have the inspiration photo I used to create each piece. So, here is the "ode to the dandelion" project. I had never worked with these brooch forms before and it was lots of fun!
I also wanted to take a moment to thank the following individuals who have been so kind as to post new reviews of the book.
Dave Robertson of Rings&Things in Spokane, Washington. THANK YOU Dave!!! :)
Davinia of Deez News from Australia who was one of the recent giveaway winners. She had some very kind words to share! THANK YOU!
