Impatiently waiting

I’m waiting on a BIG supply order…UPS said it was supposed to be delivered last week, and then at the last minute, I got a text saying the delivery wouldn’t be until later this week!  Love the technology that allows me to track my packages, but I hate waiting!

In the meantime, I worked on a couple of projects with the supplies I had on hand.

A copper micro Dragonscale weave.  I can only do a few rows of this at a time until my eyes start to cross, so I work on a little each time I’m in the studio.  This will be a bracelet with  cool handmade clasp when it’s done.  I love this weave – it’s one of my favorites (honestly, nearly EVERY weave is my favorite…) – so substantial but flexible. I’ll probably touch this with a torch before polishing it to give it some nice patina.

It takes about an hour to do an inch of this stuff.  But it looks sooo great when it's done.

I got a few more rows done today.  The silver ring on the end helps me to remember which end is the one I’m working on. 😉

Few more rows done, but still a long way to go.

And the little stirrups I made up last week got a little ring soldered to the top of them.  Again, think tiny tiny…it just takes a kiss from the torch to make the solder flow – I don’t want to melt everything and end up with a blob of silver!

Here they are all finished up…shiny shiny silver earrings!

And the companion necklace.  I like it hung from a simple silver snake chain.

One of the next things I really need to do is either find my camera (it’s SOMEWHERE, I just don’t know where) or get a new one….these phone shots are just not cutting it.

Finally, I worked on some painting at the studio. I’ll never be a painter, but I’m happy with how this turned out. 🙂

Pi Studio...either people will get it, or they'll think we've lost our minds.
