The first offering is this little trio of cameo's made of fine silver metal clay. These were samples for one of my very first class projects about 6 years ago. I called it Frames and Bails. We used the same focal design (in this case an intaglio ring with an incised cameo I used as a mold) and finished them in different ways to see how details can change a simple design.
Each giveaway will have it's own set of rules. For this one, tell me about the lady who posed for this miniature sculpture. What do you imagine her life was like, what was she thinking, what was she going to do later that afternoon after her sitting.... Imagine a history for her. Not an entire biography though. Just a few lines. I'll ask one of my friends to read the answers and pick her favorite. The contest will be closed next Friday the 28th and the winner will be announced on the following Monday.
Please make sure there's some way I can contact you. If you don't have a blog of your own, leave me an email addy. Bon Chance! Can't wait to read all of your stories!
