Sketching & Watercolor On location

I'm taking a sketching class with Jane LaFazio and our second lesson was to go to a coffee shop and sketch our coffee or pastry. I sketched a scone at Starbucks along with the bag it came in placed on a plate. Since I haven't drawn much (hardly at all), this turned out okay. The second drawing is one I did of some grapes. I like this one!

My friend Bev had lost one of her favorite earrings and asked if I could make a set similar. Here is what I made for her.

After finishing those, I decided to make a pair with my own twist on the octagonal shapes. Here is what I did. The center is all solder and I love the messy look of it. I made three sets.
