Another from my Treescapes series, inspired by the imagery in the Dendritic Opal stone. There are a number of interesting butte formations close to us. I actually found one called Chalk Butte that looks a great deal like the formation in this stone. Yet with all the white, this one just reminded me of how things look after a fresh snow fall, so I call this Snowy Butte.
This stone is another I bought from Mark Lasater of The Clamshell. The oxidation provided an even more colorful backdrop for the sterling silver setting. I love the bluish tint in the upper left hand corner; a bit of an extension of the ‘sky’. I carried the shrubs into the top of the setting with some piercings for the branches and texture. Continuing to experiment with the look and feel of these, I added a small silver ball to the frame too.
Until next time, aspire to be more as an artist and a person.
