This came out great! Better than I expected. Definitely want to draw more of these…

Ever since I made my Tarot Inspired necklace, I have been consumed by a desire to etch images I love.  Lucky for me, I can draw but when I want a really fine line drawing, I call upon my talented daughter Sam.  She can create amazing illustrations using only fine lines right onto metal!!!

Sam drew this fabulous Chinese dragon onto a brass metal blank for me.

My own drawing is not as clean and fine but I think it turned out OK in this necklace.

This Phoenix rising out the ashes is an important symbol to me and I find myself wanting to create meaningful images more…
