Acrylics on claybord
In addition to my never-ending battle with the weeds, I have managed to do some painting. Not as much as I'd like, but here's the most recent one--just finished a few days ago. This is acrylics on Ampersand claybord.
I've also been working on my jewelry. Finished a couple of pairs of earrings and a necklace. I'm getting ready for a small fundraiser in August, where I'll be debuting my jewelry. Right now most of the pieces are made with inexpensive beads and wire, since I'm still working on design elements, etc. But I will soon make the switch to sterling silver and gemstones, so stay tuned! Here are a few samples:
I'm still learning about twisting wire and playing around with different techniques and design elements, which is why I'm using the inexpensive materials right now. But I'm definitely enjoying this new venue--I've actually made jewelry before, but really hadn't considered selling it. I'm hoping to make my own beads and pendants at some point, too. I guess that's what happens with us creative types--always moving forward and trying new things. That's a good thing, though, isn't it?
Well, it's time to move outside. The weeds are a-calling! Later!
