Big Pile of Brass



Finally, today I got around to finishing up some brass pieces I etched a while ago. That whole wedding planning frenzy has played havoc with my work schedule. I confess, the real reason I didn't get these pieces finished is that I lack discipline. But the wedding planning is just too much fun to give up to polish brass pieces. I do love brass. There is just something about that warm glow of brass that has a patina that makes my little heart sing. It's good to see these little pieces go from almost black with tarnish to soft and glowing. Most of these are going off with me to the Austin Beads Society show this weekend.


In a little wedding planning news, which of course I can't resist, much got done during my quick trip to Wichita. The bride has a dress, the brides maids have dresses, we have a place. Look at those flowers up there in front of the building where the reception will be held. It makes it so easy to decorate for the wedding because mother nature is doing the best stage setting we could ever get. Why mess with that? I'd love to show you photos of the bride and her wedding dress but a certain groom is known to lurk on my blog from time to time. It just wouldn't do to let him have a preview of the big day. And Cole, if you out there lurking, just don't even think about trying to get any top secret information out of us.

Wedding planning is so exciting! It is all the little details that make it so special.
Your etched pieces are wonderful...I think I do prefer the brass etched over the copper as it does usually get a deeper etch.

The wedding site looks beautiful! Even though it can be a pain, when you find such wonderful places and everything starts to fall in place, it gets a little more fun :o)

Love the brass pieces! And you're going to be in Austin? I wonder if I can come up with a good reason for a day trip??? (haha)

Enjoy your Wednesday!
