Shop owner Makinzy with new signs....
crystalized leaf detail. I also added a patina to the leaf; it will continue to age & turn greener as time goes by.
The circles at the bottom are for adding temporary sign; like for sales & such--with super magnets :)

A set of signs made for a cute little boutique in downtown Boise--that my cousin just opened this summer.  I used left over copper, re-claimed steel, cable scraps, & other metal tidbits.  The larger sidewalk sign also has these cool old wheels that came off of something...  And, I couldn't resist adding some crystals to the leaf!    The shop itself has a collection of vintage and artist made clothing, home decor items, jewelry, & organic skin care products. 

Pattern or design used: My own design - Amber Conger

Thanks for sharing,

What a GREAT looking sign! I just attended a tour of the metal fabrication shop at the Yale School of Architecture. They had robotic milling machines, CNC cutting tables, plasma cutters and a collection of equipment that was freaking me out.

I will have to check out the rest of your postings, as I'm wanting to see more of your beautiful work.
Thanks so much for sharing this. I'd be drawn right into the shop by these signs, and love the fact that your design provides the addition of adding Sale info onto the sign.
