Funny How Life Takes Over

I started this blog back when I wasn't working. I had much more time and every intention of keeping up on it - and I did sooooooooooo well for such a long time!! Then life took over. I got a full time job, then I had a nightmare situation with my business software crashing, and 3 weeks later, I'm still trying to dig myself out.

I've also been working on a really cute mini-backpack as a custom order for one of my friends on the jewery forum, and now I have to start doing research for a very exciting business venture that might be headed my way (I'll dish more in another post - I promise!!).

Now, I'm not saying I'll be able to post as much as I did before, but I will make a consious effort to get on here at least once a week. I miss being here, and hopefully you miss me as well? lolol!

Just For Fun

Sometimes after doing some pretty intensive pieces, it's nice to do fun and easy. Here he is my Polymer Clay Man On The Moon.

Celtic Cross and Chainmaille Necklace

This necklace seemed to take me forever, but I was sick while working on it, and I ran out of wire, and broke the last of my saw blades and had to order more - yada, yada, yada. lol!! I am really pleased with the result though!

The pendant is about 2.5 inches by 2.5 inches made from copper sheet (about 22 guage), which I cut out, filed and engraved with the celtic knotwork design. (I think I'm starting to get the hang of this engraving thing!)

The necklace is done in the half persian 4-1 weave. I've always heard that this is a difficult weave, so I've put off learning it for a long time, but I actually found it quite easy to do.
