It’s a Matter of Attitude

I think this is a beautiful piece of Texas Flint. I purchased it from Minerax during the Gem and Mineral Show week. It was another one of those stones that perplexed me when it came to a design. However, after I had my breakthrough, this one just continued to evolve.
It’s one of my first pieces that I think has that true Arts and Crafts look to it. In my opinion, the sterling silver circles really compliment the stone.
As I worked on the top section this week, I truly wished that someone had a square cutter just like they have circle cutters for metal. I used square wire and soldered them in place. My first attempt at this resulted in melting the top piece. I’m very pleased with this second attempt.
I used sterling silver for the construction and added patina for color highlights to compliment this stone.
The title just kept resonating with me and so I felt it was necessary to call this “It’s a Matter of Attitude“.
Please feel free to share your thoughts with me on this one. I always enjoy what others see in my works.
The holidays are here and I want to send my best wishes for a safe and festive holiday season to all of you. Until next time, aspire to be more as an artist and a person.
