Some Pics and Prices for you

Well here I am with a few minutes today to post some pictures of my work along with some prices (I hope). The first picture is of a nativity that I've made that I'm ever so proud of:
Price $65.00 + shipping
This picture was taken in the daytime and it really doesn't do the piece justice as to how it looks in the dark.
The next picture up is of a smaller filigree piece that is really pretty:
Price $40.00 + shipping
I took a really terrible picture of this next one but the lighting was bad. This piece has a lot of engraving all over it with blue in the engraved spots and green over the rest of the piece:

Price $45.00 + shipping
I hope someone loves this next piece 'cause it's a real beauty! It's topped with a deer antler with turquoise inset and beads in the front and a deer head woodburned on the back which is colored in waxes. There is leather coiled on the top and engraving on the sides. The background of the piece is colored with dye. The whole piece is coated with sealer to preserve it:
Price $55.00 + shipping
                                                           Price $20.00 + shipping
Looks just like the real apple doesn't it? Of course it's much larger and you can't eat it! This piece hasn't been opened up.

Once again this is not the best picture but it is a fantastic piece. When I first saw the gourd that makes up the body of this piece, all I could think of was.....pheasant. I do believe it turned out to be a quite beautiful pheasant if I do say so myself:
Price $100 + shipping


All of my pieces are cleaned thoroughly both inside and out. The inside of the gourd is finished off with a coat of paint and the outside of the gourd is sealed completely with a coat of polyurethane to keep it nice. All you have to do is dust it with a feather duster and keep it out of direct sunlight.

If there is a particular thing that you collect or have a perchance for you can let me know about what you're willing to spend on it and I can create something for you that's custom made. Just contact me and let me know what you like or you can certainly purchase one of the pieces that I've shown you today. I have only one of each of these so it's first come first served. Thanks for looking at my art and for being so supportive of me.

Thanks for the heads up. So glad i came back for a peek. I was wondering if you'd be willing to share how you found places to sell your artwork? Are they consignment shops or did you just walk in a shop with your wares and ask 'hey would you sell these here.' What approach has worked best for you? Thanks for any insight. deb
