Things I've Made

 Just a little post highlighting some of the jewelry I've made recently, seeing as I've never posted it.  I'm not very confident in my photographing abilities, so I procrastinate a lot when it comes to sharing things I've made.  I am determined to do better!  

This first piece I call Fire and Earth. I made it for myself in honor of my more potent elements.  The focal is brass and copper.  The chain is also brass and the beads are serpentine from a bracelet my sister bought me that din't quite fit.

This piece I call Winter's Gift.  The design came to me a few years ago after doing a guided meditation from Jamie Ridler about winter.  This was a gift to my eldest sister.  She wanted me to repurpose the glass briolettes from some earring that weren't her style.  So I added some glass pearls, silver-tone chain, bead caps, and a dumortierite focal.

I love these cuff links.  These were a gift to my brother-in-law who also likes paisley.  I made them out of polymer clay then painted and sealed them.

Winter Wonderland?

Why doesn't it look like this?  It's supposed to look like this.  Snow on the ground and chilly.  Instead it's wet and muddy and we've just begun February.  I can't help but feel like we'll pay for this later.  Either it'll snow later on, or summer is going to be annoyingly hot.  Anyways.

Happy Imbolc lovelies!  I made butter again this year.  For dinner I made cream of potato soup in bread bowls which was delicious.  I also made some ice candle holders in place of a plant centerpiece.  It's been a pretty good day.

Edit 2/12/16: It does now, much to my mother's dislike.
