Today, today I was going to make rings. All day. Yep, rings. Rings for your fingers, rings for your toes. My new ring mandrel arrived this week and I thought whohoo! I had been waiting on that for a while, and now I can get going.....and yes I did.
I made ..... earrings, three necklaces, and seven silver bookmarks from old spoons. Hmm. Did you see a single ring in that list? No me neither.
Ah well, I suppose we wait till the muse strikes us. And on the plus side I practiced with the silver spoons, something I have been wanting to do for a while. I picked up a dozen pretty souvenier spoons at the charity store to practice on before I use the really beautiful antique sterling spoons I have sitting just waiting to be upcycled!
So, tomorrows posting will have all this and the other items we made all this week. I am bound to slow down a little once I'm back at work next week but its been a great two weeks just making' and mending' and fixing'.
Chat tomorrow, posting day!
In other Dawnings news we applied to three craft fair this week - wish us luck in getting chosen!
