New Earrings

I've got that mellow relaxed feeling at the moment, knowing I've got the next two days off work. But it does mean I'm working this weekend though........

My plans for tomorrow (Weds) are to make a start on a project for Bead magazine that needs to be in by December. I know what I'm doing it's just taking the step-by-step photos and the weather issue! It's meant to be a bright day tomorrow so it should be full steam ahead (camera battery on charge as I write!)

I managed to get all of my new earrings photographed last week which is always a relief. Here's some of them.......


These green enamel ovals have been hanging around for a while then I suddenly thought those pretty pink and green czech glass nuggets might go ok with them!



Dogtooth Amethyst and sterling silver hoop earrings made as part of my last Bead project



I twisted the copper wire for these using my Dremel



I'm planning on making more of these in other colours.....



I had fun stamping these copper discs even though I have to do it on my knees on the kitchen floor! The table I work on isn't sturdy enough and you end up with a shadow when you try and stamp on it so everything gets moved to the kitchen ~ hammer, bench block, copper, stamps...... plus at least one cat wondering what the hell I'm doing!

  1. It doesn't matter what you're doing, a cat will always come over to see... and, usually, plop down in the big middle of it! (hahaha!) Hope all your pics for the magazine turn out as well as your earring shots did. LOVE the poppy earrings! I mean, they're all great, but I seem to like those best. (shrugs)

  2. your earrings are all simply beautiful...and u poor thing stamping on the floor...i saw Lisa Niven Kelley once camping and she was stamping on a tree stump...she said it was the best thing she had ever stamped on...maybe you can find a smaller one and turn it into a stamping bench for yourself...just a thought to get you off your knees :)...
    take care ttfn Lana :)

    Magazine project all done yesterday. That's a good idea to use a tree stump for stamping.... I just need to find one now!
