Dreaming of Rhyolite and Copper Wire
A very short post today. I've spent today making this necklace and now I need to get my house work under some level of order. My studio seems to have crepe onto my kitchen counter. Yikes!
I woke up this morning with this wire link on my mind. The whole time I was forming it I was questioning it's stability, but after hammering the loops to harden and then pressing the loops down to align with the stone, forming a little angle from the loop to the bead, it seems to be staying put. I'll wear it around the house to give it a test drive before I list it in my on line store. By the way, the stone is Rhyolite and the copper is 18 gauge and 16 gauge for the clasp and larger jump rings.
Oh, and 2 of my New Year resolutions....first, to fill my on line store to the brim with jewelry; second, to join Weight Watchers and get a balanced, healthy diet into my routine, not to mention losing enough weight to get back into my skinny jeans.
I'm working on a new tutorial for another wire link that I completed yesterday. The pictures are taken. I just need to schedule some time to put the words down. It should be posted here on my blog in the next few days.
Have a creative and joy filled day, everyday in 2013!!!! Thank you for visiting my blog. ~ Linda
