This 5 x 7" cow print is a reproduction of my original acrylic collage. I printed it on Epson archival Velvet Fine art paper using archival inks.

I have left it unmatted and unframed so that you may choose colors to match your decor, but you can get an idea of what it might look like framed by viewing the photos above.

Trendy Holiday Gifts for 2016

Good Morning,

Today I would like share some items that are apparently trending this year.

This year Adult Coloring books are all the rage, and I own five or six.  There are all kinds of coloring books out there, and there are even instruction books on the designs called "Tangles" or "Zentangles", draw and color your own designs.

The cell phone, the personal accessory now has accessories of its own.  How about something unique for the Cell-Selfie-Text addict you know?  These adorable Ear-Phone Jacks protectors (dust guard) are available at Amazon and come in several styles.  I like the elephant.  Fun, affordable and more bling to ring about.

Know a Do-It-Yourselfer?  How about a fun kit in their favorite hobby or crafting passion. I love to knit and these kits are just adorable.  You can find them on Etsy, and they include, animals, mythological creatures and dinosaurs.  Clever and cute.  (I want one).

 Geeks, we all know one, and sometimes they have best toys.  Like this Mine Craft cellphone charger as sold on ThinkGeek.

Because presents should be personal, check out the Personalization Mall, they have great items like this unique Jewelry Box that can be customized and totally affordable at $34.00.

Thank you for stopping in and having a look.

The Alchemists Vessel would like to wish you a pleasant day.

New In The Studio: Oops Weave

Good Afternoon,

The blog is a little late today, we spent yesterday and most of this morning learning new weaves to entice, delight and surprise you.

Several of the attempts did not work, but undaunted, I will eventually learn those that have me stumped for the moment.  The successes are always fun as well, and this simple and deceptively intricate weave is quickly becoming one of my favorites.  

Commonly referred to as "Oops" it is also (technically) called European 4 in 1 Unbalanced and / or Reversing Bias 4 in 1.  I like Oops best.

The weave makes a lovely mesh like-pattern, that reminds me very much of garter stitch in knitting.  The tutorial called for 16g 1/4 ID rings.  This makes a large, chunky piece that feels wonderful to the touch and can be created in single or multiple colors and a variety of metals.

Shown here in 16g 1/4" ID and 18g 5/32" ID.  This weave can make a bold and bright statement or be sized down for a beautiful feminine and delicate band.

Shown here in the horizontal position as it would appear on your wrist.  Bright and Anodized Aluminum in Dark Blue and Emerald Green create a pretty wave pattern down the center of the piece.

Shown vertically in Violet, here the Bright Aluminum is used as an edging creating a striking stripe of purple down the middle of the piece.

We are working on both sizes currently and hope to have them available in the shop soon.

Like what you see, but don't want to wait for the listings?  Contact us today with you custom request and let's make something wonderful together.

Thank you for stopping in and taking a look.
