OK so I should have get into the garden yesterday, especially as today is so much less clement. Looking out of the window it might be dry enough for me to go and sort out the fallen ivy hedge, when I've finished here. But yesterday the stun was strong and I burn easily, so instead I stayed in and played with wire and green dyed Onyx. Well Green is my favourite colour.
Having wrapped, stitched and woven my cabochon in a silver coloured wire frame, something was needed to suspend it from. Peridot rounds and Clear Quartz corner drilled cubes seemed like an idea. Threading very small rounds was tough on the eyes, next week-end I should have my proper new glasses!
Now of course there is the option of necklace with our without pendant creating two different looks.
While not paper crafts these are hand crafted and so I thought I'd share them with:
Crafts 4 eternity - Metal
Alphabet Challenge - Jewels
Polkadoodles - Frame it
Moving along with the Times - Sewing, Stitching
I also passed some time chasing the cats with a camera.
Miss Minx, being very co-operative but not liking the flash
Her brother Pounce, the family hunter and well known wimp. He was co-operating in the hopes of strokes
Izhe, un-related to the other two and the most nervous but also the bravest here in a hole.
