I love to create jewelry, using beautiful materials. I can't draw a stickman but I can combine colour, texture, shapes in such a way that it makes for beautiful pieces that can make someone who gets to wear it happy! There are so many things that inspire me to create something new whenever I can find the time.
Nelson Mandela, dead at 95. It moved me to tears. If there were more like him, maybe some of the atrocities that still occur in this workd would not happen. The CBC has some never heard audio tapes with interviews. Download them as a podcast, they are worth it......
I love real Christmas trees and prefer them over fake ones, despite the mess when you have to clean them up..... They make the house smell so nice. Usually it takes time to search through all the options but today it took 2 minutes. It is outside waiting to be brought in tomorrow and be decorated. It is the kick off to the season! If I had a big house i would buy one as big as this one.
Marissa inspired me and so I made a few new pieces.
Some earrings with etched bronze and a pretty blue gem stone. The second necklace is a little different with the dupioni silk as a necklace and an old key as a pendant. The grey one is jasper and has a finished viking knit in bronze necklace. It looks good I think!
On the weekend I spent time with my sister in her new home. What a view!
Today I took the day off to play with my jewelry materials. Here are some earrings I made. I used the rolling mill to texture the copper. What fun! For the bronze ones I etched the metal. They worked out ok I think!
Are you like me? Accident prone? Well, with sharp knives I am an accident waiting to happen. It did today. At least an inch and it wouldn't stop bleeding! I hate sharp knives..... Give me blunt ones anytime!
We usually go to Hope Bay to celebrate Thanksgiving and so we did again this year. We have a lot of friends there. A beautiful sunrise started the day. We sat out in the sun and some even went skiing.......Then we get ready for dinner. The turkey is cooked in 90 minutes or so underneath a bucket and surrounded and covered by coals. Delicious!
