June Meet The Maker 21

June 21

First of all…Happy Midsummer everyone (midwinter to you poor shiveries in the Antipodes!).

Regarding my first piece (the one that was bought from me on the street all those years ago in Melbourne) I have no photos of it. It was in the days before smartphones and uploading everything, so it has to be consigned to memory.

Instead, I’ll share my dragonfly brooch in sterling silver, the first ‘intricate’ piece I ever attacked with a saw. This went to a good home long ago in NSW, in exchange for a box of heirloom Cox’s orange pippen apples, which was my drug of choice at the time (before I discovered Tuscan super reds).
