Happier days are coming!

I took a quick moment before dinner last night to finish this guy up .  His name is Happy Jack and as I looked at him today I decided he has inspired a series of lil Jack's.  He is just slightly larger than a penny but I think he has a lot of heart.  Halloween has always been my favorite holiday and fall my favorite season.

Today after I blogged out my sadness I took my aviation snips in hand and cut these pendants out of 24g copper sheet.  Then I hammered the heck out of 'em!  Of course they are finished in a variety of torch-fired enamels.  What's better than fire and hammers to work out your emotions?

Here are some close ups of the leaves:




Hmmm...maybe I need to make some more of these pendants for upcoming shows.

Happy fall to you all!


  1. Love the leaves. Would it be possible for you to make me something with two oak leaves (Jack and I) and three acorns to represent the kids? Just asking. I am wearing the flower necklace again today! Love it and you.

    1. No such thing as "can't" in my vocabulary. Jacqui particularly enjoyed that quote from Daddy, since she heard it from me all her life. Until Johnny said it, I wasn't aware i had been quoting him all those years. So the answer is, of course I can and will :). Maybe that will be it's own lil series! People can have how ever many acorns they need on request. Love you too sister.

    2. I can't wait to see what you come up with!
