SANTA GOES GREENSanta is above everyone else in his concern about global warming as his North Pole home and gift making factory is in jeopardy.  Thus, Santa is going “Green” to be environmentally correct and to let the rest of us become aware that we are to be caretakers and responsible managers of the good green earth and blue sky of the atmosphere.  Santa teaching us about loving one another and giving gifts of happiness both of which can not be without taking care of the environment in our little corner of the world.  In this series of carved jewelry pins, Santa is wearing a Green cap to remind us to be “evergreen” ourselves.

SANTA JEWELRY PINS The photo at the left shows eight Green capped and eight traditionally Red capped Santa jewelry pins.  Santa jewelry pins are carved out of bass wood approximately one inch by one and a half inch by three sixteenth inch thick.  These relief sculptures are carved with a knife utilizing slicing cuts.  The pin backs jewelry findings are glued using super glue and a spray accelerator to make a secure bond.  Coloring is done using the “Painting Softly” method described under “Navigation” to the left of this posting.
