Otter Jewelry or Key Hanger in Progress

Otter incomplete

This is another driftwood piece awaiting completion. The paint job on the otter has been sealed with lacquer, but the face is going to get touched up slightly before it becomes available later this week.

Both wood pieces were collected from Vaseux Lake, in the Okanagan.

I usually secure eye hooks and wire strands along the backing of my pieces for two reasons. First, it is easier to hang a piece on the wall suspended from wire strands, and second, because it feels like the piece is sufficiently secure resting on two wire loops.

This time I followed a different method. As the bottom piece of wood had an existing hole through it from its past life, I drilled a matching hole along the left side. The finished piece will be secured directly into the wall by two screws.

I hope to have this piece completed and listed within the next week.
