tin and marriage...


Just thought I would post this commission I finished up a couple of weeks ago. The couple will be getting married the first week of September in New Mexico, and the bride had seen my table numbers in a past issue of 'Somerset Wedding 2'.

These table numbers I made by embossing tin, bronze and copper sheets and wrapping them around a 4x6 template. For the family tables I attached photographs from the happy couples family and childhood the others were embellished with milagros, flaming hearts and marriage symbols.
The backs have mini 1 inch family photos from the plethora of photos the bride sent to me. Here's wishes to the couple for a glorious wedding day...

What a fantastic idea, Angela. No wonder the bride wanted these for her wedding - I can only imagine how distinctive & sparkly these will look - and perfect for someone being married in NM!
Congrats on the commission.

Stumbled across your blog while looking for information on Richard Compton - I'm sorry for your family's loss. I'm also sorry to say I didn't realize he was married to your sister. I'm an avid credit watcher and first discovered Richard during his days with Miami Vice. I just this morning heard he had passed.

Also, as someone who grew up right along with you - albeit from the other side of the screen - I'm happy to see you're still creative. Wonderful stuff you are doing. I hope you don't mind if I add you to my blogroll and send a few more people this way.

Great stuff!
