great idea to take metal springs for mounting!
Well, bones are not my favorite adornment, but I can imagine these as a fast-selling item for men´s gift!

...love your disaster-work table!

Kind of cool, except I find the pig bone a bit gross.

Paula, you have a sure touch. I see you making things that people can like and use, yet staying true to your own creative instinct. Not giving way to the easy, sweet, or sentimental in hopes of popularity.

Your work table is great! Reminds me of my grandfather's work shop: out of chaos comes order.

Love the new pendants, Paula. Those fishing things are "safety snap connectors."

funny shara, you coming from the doctor world and artist world. bones are so natural and wonderful. lovely things.
lisa, you always seem to say things that make me feel stunned and grateful. i really appreciate you.
anita! i googled everything trying to find those thank you, now i know :) course i can't be buying brand new but its good to know they are out there!

The bone and metal pendant is my favourite ever! The photograph is pretty good too. I showed the safety snap to my man because I remember seeing them lying around and you won't believe it, but he threw them out. If I find any more I will mail them to you Paula.
