One More Lid...

The current thing I'm working on is a wedding present.... and I just dunno. Its another lid (for the glass boxes.) Weddings are so encased in homogenized format, that its tough to break through with something that feels fresh and fun. Except for the parties though! The parties do carry on rather well it seems. As for the gifty part, I think money is the best unless its an 18 year old couple that doesn't even own a skillet. But, you know, I make stuff a lot easier than I make money. ;) And money does seem impersonal anyway.

I decided on using the double ring symbol, and designed a branch like textured background. Here are some other marriage symbols I liked but didn't get into:



This is the thingie I've made so far. I'm going to have it cast in bronze, I think.

Wonderful work.
About the shadow shots..don't let anything stop you..I cheat and drag my lawn statues all over the place..just as long as I get a little shadow. I do amuse myself, have been in MAINE too long..

Hey, money is great for the present time, but a gift with your heart in it will be remembered and treasured a lot longer. I can recall vaguely who gave us $, but every time I pick up my bible, for instance, I know it was Gordon & Laurie.

I like this lid, but also liked the first one, celtic design. Box idea is very good. Kate

This gift will definitely be something that they will treasure. Beautifully carved in wax.
