So many things! I update the shop and forget to tell you. I'm a bad blog mother.
Lots of pale rustics goin' on- getting into really elemental stuff; driftwood, raw stones, hammered metal.
I amaze myself sometimes, what can be made with reclaimed and secondhand materials.
Love these! the raw stacks of quartz, recycled glass, a seedpod from England. Mismatched is the business.
The free shipping deal in the shop has been extended til January 19th, cause I felt like it. That's how I roll!
Dad is a crafty type as some of you may know, so he has work tables and tools and interesting useful things all over the house. This bench is on the back porch and was set up to restore a stained glass window- since he'd finished doing that, I laid claim to it, cleaned it off and set up my 'messy bench'. So I can hammer and carve and solder and tin snip and Dremel and heat gun as much as I like. This is a shot from the first 24 hours, it's been about a week now so obviously it looks nothing like this now!
It's only a little cottage and once I get everything else in my room, then a desk for the computer, a desk for shipping, a desk for sewing...so the rest of the jewelry construction goes on the bed- on a board with velvet over it. It's a bit annoying as I have to pack it away every night, but in other ways it's good, it gives me a challenge to get stuff finished everyday, to make it worthwhile setting it up in the first place!
