A new project, a new challenge

I am starting to build a new piece that it is very close to my heart.

This new work piece is inspired by our journey with our daughter Veronica when she was born 3 months early in 2002.

Veronica's birth weight was 1 lb 11 oz, and even though she was extremely ill more than two times she always fought back with all her heart.

She was an inspiration for all of us because she never let go and fought all the time during her three months at the NICU.

Veronica nowadays is a very healthy, energetic, positive and loving little girl that is always teaching us a new thing every day ;-).

The piece is going to be created by a combination of bronzclay frames and two PMC3 (silver clay) frames that will be the central focus of the necklace.

I am still working on the final design and a title.

Working with Bronzclay

I had a great time making these Bronzclay pieces for future jewelry pieces.

Every time I play with the clay I learn something new and I like it more and more.

Some of the pieces are going to be on a necklace I will be creating with different metals (copper, bronze and silver). This necklace is very close to my heart because it is inspire by my daughter Veronica and her journey in the NICU on her first three months of life.

The name of the piece is going to be "Frames of a Survivor" but it may change depending on the feeling I will have when the piece is finish or maybe my own daughter will tell me the name ;-}.
