I just finished a necklace & earring set for a 1/1 swap for the Altered Art Guild. I am paired up with Michelle, the group owner. This is a bit late, but that seems to be the norm lately.
Where does the time go? I've always felt like as I get older time seems to spin faster and faster - it's just not fair (whine, whine, I know)! Anyway, I am ALMOST caught up on overdue projects. Just have to get busy on my Christmas cards, of which I am only making 16. So if you are on my Christmas Card List and you get a handmade card consider yourself blessed. Typically I make about 50. The thought of making 50 cards gives me the shudders - I just don't have time! Still working on Mom & Dads 50th Anniversary gift. They should have it in time for Christmas.
Back to the jewelry. The necklace is constructed from bits of chain, potato & rice pearls, topaz crystals & glass faceted beads, micro seed beads, one of my new XL beadcaps, wire, head & eye pins and bronze AB metallic faceted beads. I like it so much I will have to make a version of it for me. That's an "I've caught up and I'm stuck at home because there's a blizzard outside" project. VBG!
Here it is! Tell me what you think. Please be kind! Jewelry is something I do for fun and do not, by any stretch, consider myself a jeweler.
