My Muses



Rhythm... in process...

Earthy inspiration...




Undulating...

Patterns in repetition...
Just as in prose and poetry...
It has been said that human beings have a seemingly basic need for such a recurrence...
or for the effect produced by it...






The Muses.... 2 " long... Handmade using Sterling Silver and Copper... with Sterling Earwires... Forged, Wrapped, Fused, Textured...


Update:  as of July 2014,  "The Muses" have Sold Out and are no longer available...

Very cool earrings Gwen! I love the close up of them hanging on the glass bottle. Wonderful texture. How many pairs did you make - it looks like hundreds! I'm glad you're back to blogging. I just checked today on the off chance. Lucky me!

Welcome back Gwen, I've missed your posts over the last six months of your absence.

Welcome back Gwen! I've missed you too. Did not get to St. Martins this summer, but maybe this fall before the snow flies...

Wow! At last you are back! I blogged about muses once, that is an interesting topic in itself.

Yay Oh Yay! Gwen is back!

We've missed you so much!

Way cool earrings! You rock!

I thought I had better put a new entry on my blog or everyone would think gravity relaxed itself here and I went flying off into the great beyond... no, still here, just a summer of working, thinking, mulling, creating, planning,... and it does take some time to plan and work out details... a new project has taken hold and been started and I'll let you in on it when we have made a bit more progress ... slowly but surely... I think it will be good...

Thanks for the welcome back... I appreciate you all, Everyone... Hope you have fared well the last few months and good things have happened for you, to make you smile!!

Welcome back, Gwen! Lovely works and photos!

Ruth said...

Here you are and I'm late late late! I had been behind on my Google reader, just catching up (shh, I should be working), and here you are talking about rhythm!

Metal is very beautiful, and in those patterns that you have photographed splendidly, even more so.

I love those long dangly earrings and can feel them tap on my neck.

How wonderful to see you, I've been thinking of you.

Hey, Girl.You must have been sending vibes across the blogesphere. I word a pair of your earings yesterday on one of my rare trips to town. Glad to have you back.

Shayla said...

Very satisfying photos and you do beautiful jewelry. I hope you had a productive and beautiful summer and you're all stocked up for your Christmas show. Good to 'see' you again, Gwen.

Leanne Pizio said...

EEEEEEEYAAAAA ! GWEN IS BACK !

Now its your turn to shout Gwen

EEEEEEEEEEEEEYAAAA the gorilla is back. Run Run !!

You have been busy and doing something useful where as i have been just sitting and doing nothing Gwen. it was like i am sitting and manufacturing time and selling, but no one is buying, i have so much time in my stock, my room is full of time and only time. And all my friends come and give me their time also all added up and i keep it, put it in my shelf. i really don't know what to do with all the time i have do you want some Gwen ?

I always shock Ruth with my ignorance, what is a google reader Ruth ?

Gwen Buchanan said...

Hi back to every one of you Lovelies...

It was great to check in and see what each of you have been up to and you have been so productive!!! I need to catch up!

Seth said...

So good to see you back Gwen. You were missed. Thought provoking post. Love that first shot and your earrings are beautiful.

Ruth said...

rauf, it is that nice thing up at the top of gmail that you can subscribe to your friends' bloggies, and whatever else you want to read regularly.

Anil P said...

Yes, symmetry and recurrence. More so when seen form the distance.

dowhatyoulove said...

It's good to see you back, and being so creative. It looks like you have been very inspired this summer. I look forward to seeing more of your art.

Sheri L (Burhoe) Larsen said...

These are very similar to the earrings I bought of yours while I was in Fredericton this summer. :-)

Chris said...

Greetings from the Shady Grove,
