My creativity has jumped! Loving this. The NFL Theme is like a huge cup of creativity. First I have to share a culinary first for me. I. Made. Wings. Our local spot closed.... :(........so I decided to attempt my own. I used a recipe from Ina Garton, the Barefoot Contessa, on FootNetwork.
First some of these
and some of this
gave us these!!!!!
Now, on to projects. First is this necklace. I have been playing with these floral components from Sleeping Dog Studio. Now, understand that I have to look at, hold, play with some things until they speak to me. Well, they finally did. I used some glass beads from Indian Creek Art Glass, some enameled headpins from Sue Beads, and some antiqued copper chain. I think it turned out really well. In fact, my daughter said that she may have to "borrow" it. :)
Oh, and there are a few great beads from Kelley! Thoughts?
Next, some earrings.
Hand wrapped with some great disc beads from HMB Studios.
These started as a bracelet from Forever 21. It was just too good and I had to take it apart.
Now, these are my fav! I love hammering silver! Gets that aggression out! 12 g silver pounded into sticks and 20 gauge hoops. I do love that rustic feel to hammered silver. But I do have a question - for all you metal workers out there - how do I buff them out? Is there a special tool? Do I get a Dremmel? I would love to know. I also love how they look on my daughter!
Today rocked! I mean, you know when you get into the groove, really into the groove? Well, I was there! :) In fact, probably TMI, I sat downstairs working, drinking water for almost 3.5 hours. Forgot to go, if you know what I mean........Love the groove! Felt really good.
I hope that you all had a good weekend.
