I was hit by a stomach bug this month and it really knocked me down for a few weeks.
Still clawing my way back to normalcy but I am mostly my old self.
When I was feeling pretty low I just sat and did tutorial work.
Love that stuff when I don't feel good enough to design.
Fills my need to create without the energy that is required to design something.
After I started mending though I did make a few new designs.
I am so excited to finally feel some confidence in my jewelry making.
To have an idea and to be able to execute it.
I am really happy with both of these designs. The earrings are so fun, they really remind me of peacock feathers.
The ring was my attempt at making a cabachon setting.
I didn't think I was going to like it
but when I finished it and put it on I fell in love with it.
I can see variations coming from both of these.
I also had just the worst disaster.
This piece refused to conform to what I wanted. I redid it several times.
I just don't think I am skilled enough to attempt this design. I have stepped back from this and will maybe attempt it again when I feel more confident.
All in all though, I feel like I am making progress. So...how has your month been going?
