All my exes...

Ok, not all of them, but a significant few.  Nonetheless I'm in Texas until 6/23, visiting family and friends and attending ApolloCon.  The last couple of weeks have been intensely busy, what with trying to finish things for school, and get everything ready for the Con.
"Dark & Stormy #1: The Kraken"  3.5"X2.5" cloisonne tile

I have 30 pieces that I intend to enter, some of which are previously unseen, and which I'll have to get someone to take pictures of before they get sold.  I've been on a compass rose kick of late, so I have 2 brooches on those lines, with more pieces to come.
"Directions #1" 2.25" cloisonne brooch

 I also spent a significant chunk of change on very nice pearls at the SNAG conference, so expect those to be figuring in more of my work coming up.  So, on that note, I will leave you with some pictures of things in process, some of which are done, and some not..

Just a quick explanation on those last two:  I have new tools!  well, materials, anyway.  acrylic painting enamels, and water-based underglaze paints, so I can do more subtle shading and more painterly patterns.  I'm pretty damned pleased with them.
