I’ve been spending the weekend over here learning all kinds of new things. Some went well, some… not so much.
The went well parts…
I’ve been practicing my briolette wrapping. I sure do have trouble with those little buggers. Tried a whole new approach and came up with Rose Swirl.
It’s a sterling silver wrap on a Rose Quartz Briolette.
I also made a new Mobius Knot…
Not a new concept really, but made it differently this time. I’m calling it “Infinity Love Knot”. Equal pieces of Bronze and Sterling in a Mobius-6 knot rather than the single color Mobius 7.
My crowning glory piece for the weekend thus far is my Hot Air Balloon Ride.
It was a commissioned piece for an author friend of mine. He has a book coming out in June and wanted me to make him a piece to play giveaway with that spoke to a hot air balloon ride in the book. That’s what I came up with for him. He loved it. 😀
That pleases me.
Now off to wrestle some more with that darned wall tree. Stubborn piece that is. Just when I think I’m close it decides to show me… I’m not. I’m getting there thou. I think.
I will not be whupp’d by a tree darn it. I will win.
I will make tree.
Adventures in jewelry.
