I went to R and F today to make some more encaustic pieces. I laid in bed last night thinking about those cat-eye shells I bought, and decided that I was going to do a series of work which feature them in some way.
I am working on a body of encaustics anyway, and thought that I should make a piece or two using them.
Our 1800's woman is protected from evil as she sports her operculum shell on her neck.
I have to design some jewelry pieces too which feature these shells. I am having so much fun with them....it is magic when a material inspires you to create and think-outside-the-box.
