kerin rose, st christopher medallion, custom workI’m feeling kind of accomplished to day, as I have sent off this custom piece to its new home….it is a surprise wedding gift, for a man who travels a lot….so, St Christopher, patron Saint of travellers is ensconced in the the center of this piece….it features four crossbars, that  are metaphorical like a compass of the four cardinal directions ( north, south, east, west), so as to ensure that the love of this brides’ life will always find his way home!….the crossbars are set with four black diamonds; the piece has some personal engraving on the back that I’m not gonna share, and swings from a jump ring that I hand carved myself. Part of the concept was that the entire piece appear to be like an ancient coin. I have to say, this is absolutely my most favorite kind of custom work…something so wholly original and personal and bucking the trend of a plain old run-o-the-mill wedding band….hurrah!  This piece took many hours of work, but oh-so-gratifying…

As for this weekend, we are in full-swing leaf peeping season, here in Vermont…so I’ve got a bit of that on my agenda ( will most definitely share some pics) and goin’ pumpkin hunting for sure…personally, I favor the squatty wide ones….no worries, I will be gentle with them! 🙂

What’s on your  relaxation agenda?

    I really miss the colorful falls but thankfully I am way too busy these days to realize what I may be missing…we went from 114 to rain and 60…I am sleepy. I will tell you, my relaxation agenda was NOT…but thankfully I was able to smile…miss you Kerin! I look forward to your pics.
