Yellow Rose Bud Panel December 2016

This Yellow Rose bud was commissioned as a Christmas present. The design was originally a square panel which we placed into a 10 inch circular panel surrounded by a soft flexible brass U channel. Eventually our client returned the panel so we could attach a fine silver chain for hanging in the window of their home.

The following photo shows the beginning of the panels construction.

Original design titled “Rose” by Denise Hurley, from the book “Flowers of Hope”

Hummingbird Oval June 2017

In January 2017 we were asked to make a hummingbird oval to be given as a gift in June 2017 for the Most Worthy Grand Matron of the Order of The East Star at its Grand Chapter 2017 meeting in Calgary, Alberta. This oval measured approximately 6 inches wide by 8 inches high.

This oval ended up going to Florida USA.

Poppies & More Poppies

We were asked by the Worthy Grand Matron of the Order of the Eastern Star to make a small boxed poppy to be given away as gifts at the Alberta Grand Chapter meeting in Calgary in early June 2017. They ended up going across Canada and the United States.

The poppies measured approximately 3 inches in diameter. We used Spectrums # 359.1 Red & White Wispy Glass for the petals and Spectrums # 1009 Black Cathedral and # 1009W Black Waterglass.

In total we made 75 of these Poppies.

Unfortunately we forgot to obtain a photograph of a completed one hanging in the sun. The photo shows 8 ground poppies ready for foiling, then soldering and cleaning after the various stages with Kwik Clean, they then had black patina applied along with Clarity Polish.
