Year of Jewelry Weeks 7 & 8

Gosh, I seem to really be the bloggy slacker. You would think I could at least keep up with one post per week. At least I have kept up with posting to the Project on time. So far☺   When I posted this to the project I still  wasn't sure how I wanted to string it. I think a beaded necklace would have been too much and when I tried plain leather cord it looked TOO plain, so I settled on this chain. It's now in the  shop . This was from a tutorial by the extremely talented Lisa Lynn Barth I have a long way to go with this technique. It's wiggly and wavy, but I still like the results☺ This bracelet was made following the tutorial exactly, but once I get the technique down, I have so many ideas of different directions to go with it! This one is in the shop here .

Year of Jewelry Weeks 5 & 6

We are starting to see more and more daylight this time of year  and I was getting excited about getting everything prepared for planting seeds indoors for the garden this summer. I WAS excited until I did the math. We still have approximately 15 weeks before we can "safely" plant outdoors and since most of my seeds take  from 6 - 8 weeks to get ready to go outside, I still have 7 weeks before I can even start to plant.... Sigh..... Well, at least I have something to keep me busy until then☺  I am really loving chain maille   and micro-macrame. Both of these beauties are available in the shop . If you haven't checked out the new shop on the new site , you should. It's hip, it's cool, it's purty☺ Let me know what you think☺
