Stormcollar


The mosaic shows the progression from colorway inspiration photo to finished piece.



In the end, I went with something completely different. A comment about the organic nature of it reminded me of a couple of deer antler buttons I had. One of them even had a tinge of bluegray on it, so I went with that.

Unlike some, I don't have an issue wearing/using a button made from deer antler. I'd much rather see it put to a use other than hanging as a trophy on a wall. Besides, for all I know, this could have been made from a shed antler, found before a mouse or other rodent ate it for the calcium.

LOVE your final choice for a button . . . perfect.

So interesting to see the progression in pictures. You couldn't have hit your coloration any better, could you? It's a talent you have, Annie!
