German Silver Buckle

An etched celtic design in german silver. I picked up some of this metal after attending an engraving workshop at Montgomery County Community College last summer. What a great class. Taught by a master engraver and filled with super talented people from across the country. I sat next to Jim Batson, one of the greatest blacksmiths in the country. Not only did I get an education in engraving but Jim filled me in on forging hand made knives. I'll write more later.

Interested Customer

I couldn't pass this one up at the market. This little one was oblivious to all the commotion a busy market could create. A perfect fit in it's mother's carrier, loved, content with it's world. You'll never know what you'll see on the weekend.

The only thing worth stealing is a kiss from a sleeping child.
