Maidel's Profile

About

For decades I had a recurring dream...well, actually, dreams with a recurring theme: I'd find a box or suitcase or trunk or even a tree filled with trinkets and jewels and tiny, cunningly crafted boxes and machines--all of them marvels. I collected pretty, shiny bits that caught my eye: Victorian metal buttons, antique watch chains, fobs, 19th-century love tokens, cut-steel buckles, silver medals, sovereign cases, coins, tins, knives, diecast toys. I took adjacent pieces and integrated them to make necklaces and other things. And I haven't had a discovering-a-small-hoard-of-treasure dream since.
