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.
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. 😉
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. 🙂
