Floral Medallion with Silver Braid

This lovely tin is brought to you by the talented hands of Lupe Meter!  Lupe's tin is my 4th feature in this month's PCAGOE challenge, "Think Outside the Box."  Lupe's creations always sparkle!  Touches of gold and silver accent her work and give it a luster that hides its simple polymer core.  Her work showcases some of the true diversity of polymer clay!  Personally I love her memory books. Handmade beads and wonderful polymer charms give them such a keepsake feel - who wouldn't want something so charming and personal to keep their memories in!  You can find more of Lupe's wonderful creations at her etsy SHOP or follow her on her Blog at http://miramecreations.blogspot.com.

In this month's PCAGOE Challenge, you can not only vote, but also bid to take home the wonderful tins our members created.  All proceeds will go to Polymer Clay for a Cause - a wonderful children's charity. Bidding goes through June 7th and the winners will be announced June 8.  Pick up a wonderful gift for someone special while supporting a fabulous cause!  Deals can still be had during this special PCAGOE challenge. If you still need to vote or bid, you can do so HERE. Remember, 5 lucky voters will go home with a prize from the guild created prize pool and one very special winner will take home a wonderful matching pendant and tin created by Jeanette of Clay Happy!

Here is another blast from the past that I'm sharing today!  This photo was done in college and taken in San Antonio at the Alamo long before I lived there (San Antonio - that is).  I entered this photo in the Best of College Photography by Photographer's Forum my Senior year and won Honorable Mention and is published in the 1986 publication.  Glen R. Servin, publisher; Kimberly Kavish, Photo Editor; and Mehosh Dziadzio, Art Director.

The lighting is so subtle.  The huge live oak that dominates the photo had just shed it's leaves in the spring and they cover the ground like time has long past.  Tiny new leaves give such a wonderful texture to background as two people cross paths.  I have named it "Meeting at the Well."  Prints are available at my shop on Imagekind.
