The Rose's Thorns, or When Donuts Go Punk

Remember these?

These two donuts were how I passed the slow moments at a show over the winter.  Couldn't quite figure out how to finish them, but at the time, I suspected that spikes might be involved in one.

It took a while to mature, but here's the finished version of the rhodonite donut:

Somehow, once the spikes grew on the donut, frilly soft finishing just wouldn't do. So rhodonite, onyx, and gunmetal chain finished it off.  I really like it!

Oh, and I finished off the malachite/lapis donut as well, but it's a completely different, non-spiky style.  And then I completely forgot to take a picture of it before it went into a local gallery. Bad, bad blogger. Maybe I'll go to the gallery and get a picture there.

This is edgy and awesome enough for any rock star or common folk like ourselves. AWESOME! The spikes opened up this beauty entirely.

Spikes! That's exactly what I thought when I first saw the donuts. They need spikes! Great work. Punky and funky and mostly, fun!

Love the asymmetry Bobbie and the complete piece has a very balanced feel.

Oh how did I miss this spiky beauty?! Totally live this! I think you've got that spike thing nailed (ha). This really is awesomeness to the core.
