This is a cuff I made recently for the Complete Nonsense swap, and this was part of what I sent my partner, Helena Puck.  She listed this Shel Siverstein poem and image as some of the nonsense that she liked and it inspired me to make a jewelry piece for her.

I also came up with a different resist method to make this.

It is made from a copper piece that I scribed the Silverstein art on, and then metal etched.  Before etching, I stamped part of the poem onto the other side.



I made two embossed leather pieces to go on either side, added eyelets and jump rings to attach them to the copper piece, and added snap closure clasps to secure it.



Some more details on my blog.

Thank you - I am learning to love him as well - it's through this swap that I learned that he actually is the author of a favourite song of mine!
