I first of all want to thank my friends who leave such encouraging comments, I do very much appreciate them! It continues to amaze me, how many people I have been able to encounter because of this blog and other online venues...ie. etsy, twitter, facebook.
Well back to the creating I mentioned, a long ways back! I have had this piece of brass sitting around for a while. Have been just staring at it wondering what I would make. It had already been forged, heated and had patina applied, so it was all set to go. I also have had these black speckled robin egg colored beads laying around for a while. Didn't mind just looking at them, because they are my favorite color. They were not doing any good just sitting there, except entertaining me, so I created this necklace. It also has a piece of brass filagree added and a vintage religious medal.
I also decided to retake pics of this broken china bracelet I had made last year. I had a similar one that was that first thing I ever listed on etsy! It was so exciting when it sold.I plan on listing both of these in my shop today, will be back later with the links!
During our dreary day yesterday, hubby was cleaning up the garage. I decided, since I had recently actually 'broke' a china plate, by mistake this time, and because of the fact that a buyer told me she had been keeping watch for some more broken china jewelry in my store, to go out and start working on a few pieces! It was actually quite fun. More to come on that one!
