Use The Muse IV Sneak Peek

Use the Muse IV was a real challenge for me as well an inspiration.  If you are unfamiliar with Scarlett Lanson's Use the Muse contests, please check out the link!  This go-round the components provided by were a challenge for me because I have worked a bit in that color palette already, so to come up with something fresh and new was a strain.  I found inspiration in the components themselves - and found a color I could expand into my overall design!  What a treat!

So here is a semi-handmade component I made for part of my design:

The adorable walnut laser carved links were included in the kit.  Thinking it would be fun to back with them with cloth and sandwich them together, I soldered copper rings, oxidized them, and then built my layers. 

Very happy with the result!  The contest hasn't been judged yet, so please check back for the Big Reveal!

  1. It's a great idea to use copper. It goes well with the wood. Can't wait to see the whole piece. When is the big reveal anyway?


Thanks for stopping by!
