I have recently joined a metal working group on Facebook and I'm learning so very much. I am trying to keep my eyes and ears open and gleaning information without opening my mouth and letting my ignorance show. I am so used to just asking a question of my beading friends, but these metal smiths are hard core. :-).
Recently, one of the group members asked folks to post some of there work that was created just for fun. I am here to tell you that some of the pieces are AMAZING! So much so that I had to share one of the artists work.
Carrie Nunes is a Graduate Gemologist from the Gemological Institute of America and studied her jewelry and metal working arts at The Appalachian Center
for Arts and Crafts. Be SURE to check out her website and Etsy store.
What I wanted to share was her series of cake rings. These are BEYOND adorable and what I refer to as a "Happy Maker." The attention to detail and the shear awesomeness of these little works of art blow me away. They are definitely on my wish list of things I'd like to own. I can't decide which one I like the most. If you need a gift suggestion for me, one of these would definitely work. :-).
