Contrary to what you may think, I have been busy! Just because I haven’t blogged doesn’t mean I haven’t meant to! Christmas came and went, the New Year was born, some birthdays popped up. Life and death – it goes on. Precious thing, life. Ain’t it grand! Now I’m up and rolling again and getting ready for spring gardening, Easter, Baptisms, First Communions, Confirmations. And I am deliciously anticipating the day my darling husband joins the Catholic Church. It won’t be long now. He has inspired me in so many ways. Who knew?
So here is a little pictorial of what I have been up to this last six weeks:
My hands have been busy too!
The Tree of Life
It certainly isn’t an original theme, but I can tell you that each piece is one of a kind. I had a blast doing these! The above pendant is crafted using silver-plated wire, gold-plated wire, adventurine stone, and Swarovoski crystals and has a diameter of 2 inches.
copper wire 1 inch dia. And garnet with sterling ear wires. I regret that I didn’t get a photo of the matching pendant I made for one of Bessie’s granddaughters.
I do know a certain someone who will be coming south in the spring. Perhaps she will get a set for an early birthday present!
So, what’s next? Take a look at what I am currantly working on:
ICE ICE BABY!
