Chapter III – the Aztec helmet, the playing toad and the monstrous fish head

I tried to get some inspiration from David Chatt, Valerie Hector, Kathryn Harris and I wrote down those ideas.
Only last week, with the encouragement of Varda and Omer, I had a turn in my story.
I started playing trying to make an Aztec Helmet.

It then became a jumping toad:

With all these turquoise and aqua colors, also this monstrous fish wanted to join the party (this is the clasp attached to only one spiral end).

WOW WOW WOW J`adore!

I am almost speechless. Your work is perfect and stunning!!
The above pic reminds me of a seahorse`s head :-)(before attaching the toad to the collar)

Looking forward to have a closer look at these 2 masterpieces of yours.

I just saw the photo of this piece in the latest firemountain catalog, and I just had to come take a look at your blog. The colors, the pattern, the clasp, I just love it!

You create very interesting jewelry and I also like your colors.
