well i had an intense making day today, no interruptions, no other activities, even curtailed my 3 hr walk to a bit of beach combing, don't think perry was too impressed with that but stella loved it, nice and leisurely just how she likes it.
i even managed to get some photos done before i lost the light
2 completed pairs of earrings, i usually make the one and leave the second a few days but no i was on a strait line from a - b. been cutting up and gold leafing some of my old stencils from the tanneries. great textures and colours on them
then i was working on a bracelet, well they is the most difficult for me and i've been fiddling with the bits of leather and metal forever trying to make something work
i love this leather, when you wet it and form it takes on a hue of mahogany, damn near as hard too, so it needs a lot of smoothing and rubbing back and polishing.
yep more of those tin framed icons - mismatched - bright colour
i also finally managed to photo the lovely goodies that steph sent me - real treasures i adore them - every last tiny one
actually there is more bits and pieces but i'm playing with them already, i gotta get this shooting lovely presents as they arrive thing together, but i cant usually contain myself.
lastly there's a pic of stuff i is fiddling with - that might or might not come to anything but got shot in the mania today
that last one is going to need some work in all those little grooves, the middle one is a pendant and is waiting for me to finish plaiting a 4 string round plait which i'm not good enough at to do while watching tv, so its on hold, thats got very ancient bone suspended in newer bone with copper.
well google is probably going to flip out and leave ya all with a bunch of question marks as its prone to do these last days for me. spell check hell i got to make food before i wither away :)
