Casting Call

How thrilled was I when the multitalented Judy Wilkenfeld asked me to submit a piece of my jewerly using an original idea of her's that she had just had made. A "silver Charlotte" which she was having cast up in metal (hm metal.)
Judy asked a few very talented ladies Diana Frey, Ro Bruhn, Kecia Deveney, Deryn Mentock and myself to make up a piece of jewerly to be featured in Belle Armoire Jewelry (summer 2009). It's titled "Casting Call" and it's about the process of going from a metal casting to a final project being used in jewerly form.
Thank you Judy, it was so much fun to see how we all put our own spin on the silver Charlotte .
Make sure you buy a copy!

Love those little metal Charlottes and what you've done with them! They remind me of playing with my Mum's doll-house furniture and those little weird plastic pink baby dolls when I was small. Do love your original take on them Crozza!
