I know I know, it’s been like forever! In my defense, events in my personal life as of my last post have made crafting and blogging the last thing on my mind.
Still, I haven’t exactly been idle. For one thing my love affair with the Japanese 12-2 chain maille design continues and I actually completed my own bridal set (one of the major distractions) which included a necklace incorporating 12-2 and crystals in a necklace and earrings. I also made a charm bracelet to wear on the day incorporating very important pendants from necklaces I have received from loved ones. No pictures will be forthcoming however until after my October nuptials. I made a matching set for my Maid of Honor incorporating half-coat hematite on jet crystals. I am extremely pleased with the outcome as well.
I also discovered this week that wearing your creations out and about is key! A woman I spoke with in the elevator at my office, LOVED this bracelet.
She asked me if I had any to sell and I said, “no, but I can make you one!” Which is what I spent this evening doing. The only difference is that I only used the antique copper. I might have hurt my poor right had a little, bit (not too badly to type though) but I maintain it is worth it. We suffer for our art!
Till next time folks, which hopefully won’t be another two months from now!
