The rest of their holiday passed without event but a few nice pan fried trout dinners. With canned peaches for desert.
Earrings assembled from a very old rusty sardine tin, carved bone beads, key hole escutcheons, and porcupine quills. The unique bead caps are back-of-the-barn trove brass settings originally meant to be used for rhinestone and riveted. All patina here is natural, and the text collaged to reinforce the tin is antique, as well, c. 1860s. That's the story and I'm sticking to it.
Soon to be added to my Etsy shop.
