Day 11

Sunday, March 8, 2009

Well it was great to take a couple of days off.  It seems spring is here and working in the garden has revived my soul.  I love putting my hands in the dirt.  I really don't like to wear gloves when I garden it feels so nice.  Today my hands are suffering though.  It is hard to believe just 6 days ago the kids were playing in the snow.  After day 9 I just ran out of ideas.  I spent two days thinking and now I am on to something new.  I put two convex spheres together.  I have been wanting to do this but could not get around not soldering them together.  Without getting too technical, soldering this kind of metal would not look good.  So I just strung them together with with wire and to my surprise, it looks good.  My son Abe said, "mom thats amazing, how did you make these little symbols"  It's true, thats what they are like.

Day 10

I love these earrings they are so fun!  I made them from a tin tray that my friend Tatjana found for me.  I made a great discovery that if I put circles back to back I get a more finished product.  So now each piece will have twice as many pieces and it is well worth the extra effort.

Day 8

Tuesday, March 3, 2009

Wow, I forgot I made a pair of earrings and didn't post them.   I was so concerned about getting them on Etsy.  I will make these my pair for today.  They are the same design as Day 5 earrings but in that beautiful turquoise pattern.  I am thinking about making something more metal worked, maybe bezel setting one of these pieces.
