It’s been a long few days over here. Been doing a bit of reading and whatnot. Not a lot of new jewelry was coming together, no matter how hard I tried. I was getting a bit frustrated, so I decided to catch up on some older projects I had in the works instead.
I finished my Black Tourmaline Writer’s Tree of Life for a friend of mine. Poor Black Tree took for/ever/ to finish, for various reasons. One of which was the stones I had were too small. Last week…ish… the local store put out more, put them on sale, and… I snatched them up.
And finished my tree.
I am pleased.
Another thing I’ve been wanting to do for just about forever was make jewelry from some I Ching coins I have. Couldn’t for the life of me figure out how to wrap them or what to do with them.
It hit me yesterday.
I wrapped them in hand hammered, flattened brass wire. Hung a rough slice of Amethyst off of the one. I like how they came out. Today I need to make some brown cord necklaces for them and they’ll be done.
Today I want to finish my sterling silver dipped rose leaf pendant. That thing has been doggin’ me for awhile now too. I think I almost have it. I hope.
