Just before the Memorial Day weekend, I got a custom request from a client on Etsy. She stated that she had some artwork from years ago and the guy passed on and she could not find anyone still producing artwork with cut masonry nails. The request she had for me was quite unusual in that she wanted text in a language I do not know. The text she requested was in Cyrillic which is the alphabet for Russia and eastern Europe. The text in the two pieces put together say Mir Bozji, or English translation, “God’s Peace”.
This work was a real turning point in my nail art. There were several bends needed and these were done with the torch heating the nails to bright red heat then hand bent with pliers. To see this sculpture and more visit my Etsy shop.
