This weekend we gained a new family member....his name is Bro, because I'm hoping Sumi will treat him like a beloved little brother (not a pest!)...this is as close as they've gotten in the past two days without a whole lot of hissing going on....I think in the end, her curiosity and wanting someone to play with will overcome her territoriality and jealousy...I hope!
Also went to the pow wow and found some awesome abalone disks...I chose them because of their back sides and am going to bezel a number of them before combining them into one neckpiece.
Here's the front (back) of the first one...taken with both my lumix and my casio...the actual piece probably falls somewhere in between the two pics. The black beads go from size 11 to 18 and I used both RAW and peyote for the bezel.
