Week end work
I"ve been obsessed like a crazy woman this weekend, I can't stop thinking of jewelry and of making it. Last night I was up until all hours searching the isles of esty for chain, stones, metal findings, beads, lace ect ect. Of course I didn't lose my mind and kept my shopping cart empty. Although I did come away with many ideas. Before that I worked endlessly on the necklace that I'm showing you. Some of the wire wrap knots are good others need work, I just need to keep practicing. Making the cocoon bead was tricky for me, it took me several tries to get it as thick as I wanted. I still have to make a hook and a closure but do not have heavy enough gauge silver, but I know how to do it! Now if I just did not have to return to that boring dull day job everything would be fine.
