Visit From an Old Friend

Earlier this month I had an email from Heather Boyd, an old friend and fellow street-vendor of Karen's and mine from Montreal days.  Heather had lunch and visited  my show at Zen Kitchen with her daughter. She made this photo-collage of two masks in the show and wore this mask earring on a necklace (bottom left) that I made in 1989!  I used to cut up old copper plumbing pipes, heat them with a torch, flatten them out and pound designs into them.  The first ones I made were pretty heavy, which probably explains why it is now on a necklace!

I didn't even realize until later that I could buy copper sheets that were already shiny and flat.  I had forgotten that I was making masks from "junk" all those years ago. Thanks Heather!

Heather Boyd is a multi-talented artist who has been making fantastic wire jewelry for years and is fast becoming a you-tube sensation with her instructional arts and craft videos.  Check it out!

Wow. Look at all those links to Heather and her work!! Just looking at that social media contact list makes me feel like a slacker. You too no doubt. Heather is a true original. Why isn't she a millionaire yet I wonder... or you for that matter.... ?
