INCHIE MONDAY - week 1

Todays INCHIE MONDAY word was ECLECTIC.  I took a piece of thin brass and squooshed it, opened it up, hammered it, folded it, hammered it some more...then i sewed it without any thread, and cut it to 1 x 1 inch. I splashed it with alcohol inks, and polished it a bit, and  threaded some brass and copper ball end wires (attempted troll hair)that i bent snakelike. Then I wired on a bronze skelly hand .  The whole thing was epoxied onto a piece of wilsonart laminate that i had cut 1 x 1.  Finally it was patined blue and green.
Week One Inchie
CU...i'll probably add some Martha Stewart micro glass balls to that naked top edge (ok, and bottom edge...what can i say- the smashed brass was lumpy)   i cut badly...it actually is SQUARE, but I took the picture at an angle...really.
.
I made two, both different.  Thought I might make a 2nd set that at the end of the year could be used for a charity auction or raffle........  Visit this site  http://everyinchiemonday.blogspot.com/  to check out other Inchie Monday participants....and it's never to late to JOIN IN!

Wow!! I LOVE this! Funny, I was looking at the main Inchie site and while viewing the other inchies I saw this and immediately (before I saw any name) knew that it was yours! You have your own fabulous signature/look/feel to your work. Great piece of art!
