What’s going on in the studio of Élise Renault
A client found a lovely piece of Mimbreño china near Cañoncito and I made it into a bolo tie for him, set in sterling.
This ring was made from a railroad tie date nail I found in Colfax County, NM to honor the 70th birthday of a dear friend. She was born in 1950. Sterling, Railroad date nail, adjustable shank, Elise Renault, 2020
