Except then I couldn't find the lampwork.
Anyway, the planets finally aligned and the muse woke up from her regular drunken stupor and I was able to create my "Sunfire" bracelet:
I know some of you are frightened by this bracelet. It does look like it's going to crawl away on its own power at any moment, but I'm kinda likin' it anyway (plus, reducing the fluffiness would involve cutting off dangles thus sacrificing a whole buncha sterling silver headpins and I'm just not capable of being that cruel). I thought it might be kinda fun to do a poll and see what everyone thinks about this so see the poll up there on the top right of the blog screen if you want to voice your opinion.
These are my "Postale Rouge" earrings.
I used some of my resin bezels - created with Patera bezels and French postage images.
I added some aged copper chain and leaf dangles and wired on some strawberry quartz marquis and red coral beads.
I had intended to start some more resin projects last night, but since the kid and I didn't get home until after 7 PM and then we still had to do dinner, shower and "quality time", resin-ating was put on hold. I ALMOST stayed up after he went to bed to work on it, but I've learned from past experience that I do NOT do good work when I tired and trying to rush something in before bedtime. Invariably, I make some kind of stupid and/or costly mistake that either ruins something completely or wastes materials or requires that an entire piece be redone.
So, I went to bed instead.
P.S. Don't forget to vote in the poll!
