Week 35 - Cha cha watch

This weekend I looked at the calendar and realized OH MY GOD, I ONLY HAVE 7 WEEKS!! 7 weeks until my Fall Open House. I need to get scrambling, doing alot of my bread and butter items, which means I probably won't be doing alot of wireworking, or much in line of playing. This piece is an order from my last show in July. Every one of these I make I sell, they are just a little time consuming, but fun to wear! The extent of wirework is the 80+ headpins wrapped, lol! I find doing them very theraputic.

Week 34 - These boots are made for walking

Ok, so its dorky but I couldn't think of what else to call this! This is another one of Laura's dichroic pieces. Gold filled square and 1/2 round, I felt the wrapping 'works' with the design in the glass.

Week 33 - Wrapped coins

Ok, so I had delusions I would get to do something new this week but it just didn't happen; I did do one of these coins last night to show someone how to do it, so I decided that 'counts'.

When my girlfriends and I get together in Rhode Island every year we make giftees for each other. This year my giftee was their particular state's coin wrapped as a pendant (I lucked out, everybody lives in a state that already has these, phew!!!). This is remy's wrap in at its best! Simple, but personal and easy to do! I think I've done 20 of these so far, I will definitely be adding it into my inventory for selling, everyone loves it :) You'll notice the one is upside down - the coin is in the frame such that it can be turned and either side can be the front.

The pictures are just awful, I kept getting reflections from the coin!

Week 32 - a few more rings

One last set of pieces I had done prior to going away, I'm finally done with all my changes for the show I did (woohoo!), so now I can play with some new stuff.

The top left ring was a tutorial I bought; I did a couple of these but quite frankly don't care for the look. The other four are something I came up with. I had intended to try to do a tutorial for the contest last month, never happened! These are fairly simple, and very comfortable to wear. The top right one is very generic, I think it would be just as appropriate for a man as a woman; the other three are more girlie. Some day I might do a simple tutorial!!
