Kovels' American Silver Marks
What the Kovels don't know about antiques," says House Beautiful, "isn't worth knowing." American silver -- from Grandma's coin silver spoon to Art Deco tea sets -- is becoming increasingly popular, and the Kovels have stepped in with a guide to identifying American silver marks. Before collecting another piece of silver, collect Kovels' American Silver Marks.
Almost everyone owns an old piece of silver. Few know the complete history of the piece. Kovels' American Silver Marks is a simple-to-use guide to identifying marks and monograms that appear on silver. Collectors and dealers can quickly determine the maker of a piece of silver. The listings include working dates, location, mark (if known), and bibliographic references to more than 160 books and articles. Makers working from 1650 to the present are included. More than 10,000 silversmiths are listed in alphabetical order, with a cross-indexing system for monograms and pictorial marks, Kovels' American Silver Marks, like Kovels' New Dictionary of Marks -- Pottery & Porcelain, an equally scholarly and useful book, will become a standard in libraries and museums.
golden tortoise beetle
a tiny bug on a leaf with a transparent bubble above, markings on the back like a flying wombat
seen and used as a model
the bug flew away with a flash of red and gold
google "transparent bubble insect"
images gives one of these ( but not so colourful) and no name
going on a bug hunt
find several in a patch of morning glory
caught one and tried to get a reasonable photo
the bug hides underneath the bubble for some time and then pokes his head out like a tortoise
google "tortoise gold insect"
bingo .. it's a tortoise beetle .. and is somewhere between 5 mm and 12 mm in length
some species are used to make jewellery
seems someone introduced one species to mauritius for biological control of a weed
not sure if it's this type
flickr search "tortoise beetle mauritius"
but not for long: - )
memo to self, maybe next time I need to polish the leaf backdrop. this one looks a mess.
And only for gimpologists .... last stage of processing .. G'MIC anisotropic smoothing, followed by refocus plug-in but can't remember what happened before that
Charoite and Lampwork Necklace
This necklace features some gorgeous ivory and mauve artisan lampwork beads by Debbie of Debbie Does Beads. In a mixture of shapes and sizes these lampwork beads have some lovely markings using various shades of the predominant colours.
The lampwork beads, flanked by some gemstone charoite beads form a drop at the front of the necklace that finishes with a cluster of charoite beads.
Two more lampwork beads lead up from the drop to a feature of gold filled wire. Using double wire wrapping with 24k gold fill wire, two wire art features have been formed, one on either side of the necklace.
Two further lampwork beads then lead to the remainder of the chain which consists of charoite bead links on gold filled wire. The necklace is then completed with a wire wrapped clasp.
This is a gorgeous necklace, very much a one off creation. The combination of the lampwork beads, the charoite and the wire art features really add up to make this necklace something special.
Length: 23 inches plus drop (58 1/2 cm) - This can be reduced if required.
