new season apples…

saw-piercing shapes out of thick silver plate
rough shapes to be filed
basic shape being carved
fingers are sore – took a photo break

used ball-burrs to creative dip in apple
just before polishing
finished apple earrings (where possible i try to have ‘left’ & ‘right’ earrings, i think it’s a nice nod to traditional jewellery, so the stalks are facing different ways, with the love letters, the stamps on the back are vertical & horizontal)

last year when i got sick, just about all i was comfortable eating were apples & chocolate. i got really frightened of food cause i didn’t know what was making me ill & these were 2 food groups i was fine with.
so *cheers* to the humble apple, my favorite snack-fruit.
(they’ll be for sale at Bowerbird markets! $55)
