Finnegan Update

So it's been about 2 weeks since Finnegan had his stitches taken out.
He is pretty much back to normal. The good news is that the vet felt
like she got a good enough margin around the tumor that he won't need
radiation. We just have to keep an eye on him and feel for anything
that might come back. Anyways that's it for now.

Wing Ring

Here is a ring that I made for my friend Jenny. She saw a ring she really liked in a store, but it was really expensive. It was a plain silver ring in the shape of a wing that wrapped around the finger. She also saw other rings that had gemstones in it and wanted to see if I can add gemstones to the ring. So this is my version of the wing ring with multi color gemstones. It is hand carved from a piece of Precious Metal Clay(PMC) and the gemstones are lab created. Not very good pictures but it'll do. I think I can probably improve on a couple of things on the ring too. You know how it is. Whne you make something for the first time. You always end up thinking "oh, I should've did this instead of this." Anyways we'll see how Jenny likes it.

Here are a couple of anatomy models that I picked up from ebay. Was thinking of using it as inspiration for some jewelry. Don't know. Their cool to look at though. They are about 6" tall. Not too big and scary.


Here's a picture that I took with Finnegan the night before he went in for his surgery.

Bridesmaids Dress

Here' a bridesmaids dress that I made for a friend of a friend. I just finished it today. Made from black Sillk Dupioni and lined with emerald color polyester lining. It's super simple. Let me know what you think.

Sicky Finnie Update

Finnegan had his Surgery last Wednesday 28th of May. I never thought how big the incision would be for removing the tumor. The vet kept saying that she will have to take a big margin around the tumor to make sure that she gets everything, but since the tumor felt like the size of a big peanut. I thought maybe the incision would be just 4 inches or so. Imagine my horror when the nurse brought Finnegan out and showed me his scar. My jaw dropped and I just wanted to burst out in tears and start crying. I felt so bad for him. So the reason for the incision being so big was that the tumor apparently was bigger than they thought and she basically had to remove a 6 inch by about 3 or 4 inch section of his skin and tissue. She also said that she was worried that she couldn't go too far underneath the tumor to get a good margin because the tumor was right on hi rib cage. Now Finnegan might need radiation. We're still waiting to hear back. In the meantime we are just sitting on the couch with Finnegan in his little travel bag that he loves. He's basically not allowed to run, jump, play or do anything that would cause the incision to open up. Oh yeah, that was the other thing. Because they took so much skin off, they had to stretch the skin to have it sewn together again and it was the only chance for the skin to heal properly. If it opened up then we would be in trouble. Anyways he's healing perfectly. The stitches will probably come off next week Wednesday. That's it for now. Will keep you posted if he needs radiation or not. We're just giving him lot's of hug and kisses . I think he's getting spoiled. Oh well, he deserves it.
