Finally

It has been such a long time since my last blog post. I do apologize. It seems the summer is not a great time for keeping up with things, and that there is more to do now than before.

I have so many new things in my shop. In fact, I even accomplished an enamel piece for the challenge last week. I am quite proud of it. The challenge was to create something from your favorite decade. I chose the Art Deco period. The neckpiece/choker was created from copper wire and specially cut copper pieces. I enameled every other copper piece in red and black for just that special touch, and I'm really happy with how it turned out.

The earrings in the picture are my latest. I actually became inspired by a pair of headlights that I saw in the latest car show that showcased the upcoming models. I created them from copper sheet that was wirebrushed and highly polished. I really like the satiny texture it gives. A "strand" of turquoise nuggets runs down the center. They and my Art Deco piece can be found in my shop.

Other than that, not much going on. House is working on falling down, broke my toe, made a garden pond, still painting my mother's house. Basically, just a relaxing summer.
