A Promise Worth Helping the World to Keep

Photo copyright Aji, 2016; all rights reserved.
Now posted at The NDN Silver Blog, it's a work that continues with the week's themes of oppositional elements melding together, but in a slightly softer, warmer way today. It reflects, in part, the change in the weather here; it also looks forward, toward the season upcoming as we embark on winter's downward slope.

The post is here. Wings's main page is here. Inquiries via the site's Contact form. And, as always, sales are much needed, so shares of the site links are much appreciated.

The Dance of the Magpies

Gulp, charm, tiding, murder: a gathering at the day's final dance.



Note: For those unfamiliar with the the first four terms, they are all synonyms for a gathered flock of magpies (e.g., as with a murder of crows).

Wedding Powerful Passion and Elemental Spirit

Photo copyright Wings, 2016; all rights reserved.
Now posted at The NDN Silver Blog, it's a work that manages to meld the elemental spirits of the season with the powerful passions of the holiday that marks it. It's a work that was designed with Spirit's aid, not for any particular purpose but that found in the soul of the one who will ultimately wear it. Nonetheless, it's perfect for the symbolism of the coming holiday.

Photo copyright Aji, 2016; all rights reserved.
Now posted at The NDN Silver Blog, it's our first Friday Feature for the month of February. Our theme for this month will be carvings of a very particular sort, and today's selection continues motifs begun with Tuesday's post. Today, we're bringing you one fetish and two small sculptural pieces, all exceptionally beautifully rendered from the same stone.

The post is here. Wings's main page is here. Inquiries via the site's Contact form. And, as always, sales are much needed (in theory, the washer repairman is coming out today; it's been more than a week, so we'll see), so shares of the site links are much appreciated.
