Happy Almost-Summer! I’ve been enjoying making earrings with antique pen nibs (many 100+ years old) and Swarovski crystals, no longer being produced as components for the wholesale trade. These pictured have sterling hooks and fun vintage links as well. They’re available at The Beaufort Emporium in downtown Beaufort, SC.
I’ll list them soon in my Etsy shop, which is currently taking a little break. See you back there in mid-June-ish! Feel free to send an email or a message through Etsy if you need to reach me before then. Take good care, Robyn
I sketched the tiger in pen and ink, but filled in the fur with snippets from Blake’s draft of “The Tyger” from one of his notebooks (copied from a reproduction in Peter Ackroyd’s book, BLAKE). Lucky for me, there were lots of heavy black scratch-outs!
To see the poetry postcards I received and for links to and about Blake’s poem, click here for my author blog post.
