brian picking needed
I need to make my stepmum, Janet, a replacement gift the earrings I made her at christmas (I asked dad if she wore earrings and he said yes, but it turns out she doesn’t)
She really misses Trevor, thier border collie. I did think about doing a Lab like thier current dog (Labs are easier to draw), Barney, but think Janet’s heart still belongs to Trev.
I want to take a recogniseably collie silhouette and make a simple brooch, but I can’t decide whether to make an outline of a dog in silver (probably slightly textured like the scotty dog earrings I made Caz), or to take a circle of silver and cut the dog out of the middle to leave the dog as a negative space.
I’m thinking negative space dog at the moment, because from a practical point of view it might catch less on clothing. Plus Janet does tend to be quite minimalist. It’s hard to think what she would prefer because she rarely expresses and opinion on her aethetic taste.
