What was I thinking?
Slowing down lasted exactly 2 1/2 seconds
until I figured out that I could solder
with my right hand, and a few other things !
Everything is quite a bit slower, as I feel like I am doing everything backwards,
when in reality my normal way is exactly backwards as a lefty :)
So what did I do in my bit of down time?
I absolutely LOADED
the Etsy store full of goodies and supplies to play with , and
add to your own creations!
So much fun stuff.
handmade focal pieces,
broken china focals ...
and I'm still loading :)
These have such a wonderful porcelain feel to them .
Made from resin clay.
Oh, and here is what I was soldering .
I haven't really had the urge to make jewelry at all ,
since all of my best pieces were stolen a few months ago. I wasn't dwelling, or pouting,
it just seemed like such an incredible amount of time was wasted , and not having
the gratification in the end that someone was enjoying the piece you created. I just didn't feel like doing more.
this week anyhow.
as soon as I thought
"oh, wait I can't do that ,"
I suddenly had the overwhelming urge
EVERYTHING ! lol
Not quite there yet,
but here are a few diddies
I did manage to assemble .
I have had these beautiful vintage china birds I cut for myself
quite some time ago, and just hadn't found the right projects for them .
I also did the beads made from vintage tin quite a while back , and they too
have been waiting for a project.
This one is quite a large focal piece.
Definitely a statement necklace.
These are little vintage salvaged
gals great for assemblage pieces, as the top of their heads are hollow!
SO fun !
