Jack hangs out in the back
eats leftover pumpkin
and today he stopped by to deliver a heart
This will be listed soon in our mother/daughter shop LuxeCoop on Etsy...this pretty pendant was hand drawn, then sawed, by me, then sanded and sanded so all of its edges are so so soft. The real Jack actually is a "pet" owned by my daughter at her day job. He hangs around outside the office window and is fed nuts and other goodies...he did bite Angelica once, though we think he was confused, and chalked it up to a love bite, a squirrel salutation. Jack loves his food, loves to flit around, but doesn't love to be held down to one place. (he gets around, in a very good way) I guess you could say Jack is a name for Squirrel our Little Critter Series, Jack is omnipresent, I wonder, aren't there squirrels outside your house or workplace? Do you name them?
Jack is about 1" by 1 1/2'. He's on a 15" sterling silver chain and has a little cut out heart (made by me, of course) with my makers mark and .925 stamped near the clasp.
He will arrive at your house with a sweet ink and water color ATC/ACOE (art trading card/art cards, editions and originals) painted by me. (hopefully you will see more and more of these little paintings in the shop for sale...soon!
This particular card is a Valentines, or Any day, card to give to your loved one with this sterling silver squirrel. it's also signed and dated. This one says
with an area for you to write a little note...
more Little Critters to come...
This piece is super eco-friendly, no harsh chemicals were used to make him, and he has no unoriginal patina added.
On a personal note, my knee passed (with flying colors so to speak) during my post-op appointment yesterday. No stairs (we have stairs) and lots of rest, ice and tylenol, and I'm also told to "walk normally"...no more overcompensating from my right leg. Mixed message? Yes! Tomorrow I start physical therapy very near home and am looking forward to the pain ebbing each day!
oh...and it's my daughter's birthdaaaaaaaaaaay!!! I have completerly bothered her by singing "Happy Birthday" to her several times, time to back off...I feel a spice cake with cream cheese frosting being made in the near future!
