“Garnet and Gunmetal”


Description from Science Chick Runs Sibes: Julie's fresh pick inspired this--reminding me that I wanted to post a pick that combined garnet and gunmetal. I did several pieces for pre-Xmas sales that used this combination.

    Gayle, I love this combo! Simply gorgeous! :D

    P.S. You’ve been missed! 8)

    Thanks to you both.

    Lynn–I’ve missed being part of the LB community for the last several (numerous) months. It’s been a very busy time–on the road for up to 4 days each week with art shows all summer and fall, substitute teaching alot, tutoring for literacy (dyslexics) and, sadly, caring for one of our huskies whom we lost to old age and complications of diabetes (that’s Niki in the front of my screen pix).

    Gayle, I’m so sorry to hear of Niki’s passing. I know how much our fur babies mean to us — they’re definitely a part of our families. How is Chilli coping? How old was Niki & how old is Chilli? You’re in my thoughts & prayers.

    I love this! The gunmetal gives the garnet a cool and hushed feeling. I think this would look great with my burgundy sweater! :)

    Beautiful pick! So sad to hear of the loss of your fur-child. I know how we grieve when our pets pass. Hugs and good wishes.

    Thanks to all for your compliments and kind words about Niki. Niki was almost 15 yo when we had to let her go. Chili is 12 yo and showing a major dominance grab (turning 12 always seems to bring that attempt but she also isn’t under Nik). She and our cat have bonded greatly–it’s amazing to see them chase each other through the house.

    Julie–yes, the gunmetal is muted so the garnet truly stands out. What you’d want for the graduated garnet strands. But, your pick lets the garnet be an outstanding backdrop for the Mookaite and brass (or antique copper). I’m going to try your idea for a Jan-birthday themed item.
