Strongbox Magazine

This past November I was contacted by Strongbox Magazine asking if I'd like to illustrate a two page spread for their upcoming issue. The project was adorable (the Editor-in-Chief's sister-in-law found a story she had written in the 4th grade about her friendship with her pencil) and I'm honored they asked me to contribute!

The magazine just went up and my work can be found on pages 38 and 39. They were a pleasure to work with so I wanted to share their publication. ♥ Thanks Strongbox!

Snake Necklaces

Christmas presents! Three of my best friends rent a house together and are all snake owners. Since I knit them headbands of their cats last year, I wanted to do something involving their pet snakes this time. I used pliers to bend little wire frames, covered each with Sculpey, and painted them to look like their “kids”. The snakes themselves range from 0.5” to 0.75” in size.

From top to bottom, left to right, their names are: Leviathan, Ninjin, Ziti, Boston, Glinda, Casanova, and Elphaba. ♥
