A Few New Designs
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. has your month been going?

  1. I love these jewelry pieces. Very, what I call Earthy, and definitely earrings I would have coveted in my younger days.

    glad you are feeling better. I'm plugging along at crochet. too many daily interruptions to get much sewing done.
