what I did today…
I needed to work on a commission piece for my Gma. She had received some beads from the Netherlands from visiting family. She wanted them made into a necklace. The round blue ceramic beads I got at Michaels and they match perfectly!
I also wanted to finish these cultured pearl and crystal earrings that I found while cleaning up my studio yesterday. The hard part was finding the pattern. But I got them done and they look fabulous. Now to decide if I want to keep them or list them in the shop.
I wanted to work with ribbon again today. It takes a while and is pretty fussy to workwith, but I really like the end product. The pink rose and pearl pieces will probably be made into necklaces. I’ll add chain or ribbon to extend them into a necklace. The owl ribbon earrings have been living in my head for quite a while now, so I’m glad they’re out now in the world. Now to decide if I will list them or keepthem. I have more owl ribbons, so I think I might end up making a set. 🙂 One ribbon has several different owls, so I think making earrings with several “links” would be cute.
I didn’t up making anything with the agate stones or skulls. Maybe another day.
An afternoon well spent.
