Welcome to the world, Sweet Pea.

I'm an aunt (again)! Little Cooper made his way into the world at 9:43 p.m. last night. He and his mommy are both doing well. My brother sounded exhausted on his message, but very happy! I'm so excited for them and cannot wait to meet my new nephew. This is their first little one. He is the 5th grandson for my mom - no granddaughters yet!

In honor of Cooper, and because I do not have a photo of him, today I'm sharing a pea pod charm I made out of precious metal clay (PMC). PMC is silver particles suspended in clay that becomes nearly pure silver when fired. Then I antiqued it in liver of sulfer solution - some pretty smelly stuff! This was among the very first things I made with PMC. I made several of them because they were so cute.

Have a great Wednesday!
