Wow, I’ve been awfully quiet over here. Seems I’ve not made any posts for over a week now. You’d think I wasn’t making anything. But… that’s totally not it. Actually, I’ve been making lots and lots of things.
I’m pretty excited about it all actually. I’ve mentioned (I think) that I was commissioned by an author to make some promo pieces for some upcoming book releases. A book bling project. W00T! 5 whole pieces. And yaaaaay, It’s finally finished. Booooy howdy, I had a blast doing this one. I took a theme and/or element from each of the books and made a pendant for each. What I ended up with was…
It’s been a chainmaille week this week. 2 new weaves, 3 new bracelets.
This latest one I finished last night just has me all kinds of proud of myself. It’s called the Half Persian 4 in 1. They say it’s one of the most difficult patterns. Go me. \o/
I played around with the Half Persian 3 in 1 last week… I think. That’s a nice one too, but I used the wrong size rings, so it doesn’t hold the pattern right. Darn it anyway. That’s ok thou. It was good practice to get the hang of this Persian weave.
The 4 in 1… yeah. That was a challenge for sure. But I love it. It make a lovely, elegant chain.
Well, yesterday’s project of an Aquamarine Tree of Life didn’t quite fully manifest. While looking thru all my stones and trying to organize my new goodies I got a bit side tracked. During my to and fro and spastic episodes of *gasp* Ooooo and Ahhhhh I managed to made a new kind of tree instead. And a necklace. I made a necklace too.
The first one I’ve been thinking about for quite a while now. It’s a Lapis Lazuli cabochon I wrapped in a sterling silver Tree of Life. 🙂
It’s my first sterling cabochon wrap. Man oh man was that a chore. It took most of the afternoon and well into the wee hours of the night but I finally did it.
Mah Lapis Tree…
