Printemps? Où ca?
I won't say anymore about spring... It's not there. Instead I can show off my new earrings, it seems I am able again to be happy with what I produce. Well, quite happy. The copper drops above have something amiss. Okay, the picture isn't good, I agree. But there's something else wrong that I can't point out... maybe the size or the too round shape of the earwires....?
Bon, pas un mot de plus sur la météo. A la place, je vais plutôt parler de boucles d'oreille. Il semble que je sois à nouveau en mesure de fabriquer des choses qui me plaisent. Enfin presque parce que cette paire de boucles en cuivre et laiton ne me plaît qu'à moitié. Il y a quelque chose qui ne va pas et je ne parviens pas à mettre le doigt dessus... Peut-être la taille et la forme trop ronde des attaches?
These I like! They remind me of old navy compass or sextant. I don't know anything about nautical instruments but I've got some images in my mind of old antiqued brass tools that look like that. You'll remember these pyramidal antique beads that I love soooo! Here and here
là et là
I made another batch of blue patina on copper, these are with some tiny robin eggs antique glass beads, I was asked for more and these sold as soon as they were listed, so I'll make some more!
On m'avait demandé des boucles avec de la patine bleue sur cuivre, donc j'en ai fait une nouvelle paire qui s'est vendue aussitôt listée dans ma boutique! Donc patience pour celles qui sont intéressées, promis, j'en referais!
Remember these? I posted them modeled on my new mannequin but I wasn't happy with them. Well now I've added a bumpy vintage silver cabochon that I have wire wrapped on the vintage silver filigree. It's better me think. But the contrast between the bright shimmer of the aluminum leaves and the fantastic ceramic boulders beads from HappyFallout makes them very hard to photograph. I should try again, well I will but I would need some LIGHT !!!!
Thank you for your very encouraging and supporting comments you left previously! I really appreciate them! Do you guys come back to read answers? I just don't know how to do and since now you must have thought that I was so rude not to reply! I do apologize sincerely, I so love to read your comments, I certainly wouldn't want you not to come back!
Lela, I would make some more of these urchin earrings soon :)
Tracy, I like my studio but light is very scarce, but I've got some project about that!
Lois, well, glad you like my haircut. It's normally not a proper fringe...
13 my hair has a life of its own and I must adapt ;-)
Louise, I'm so glad you wear my earrings all the time, your journal is always at hand too!!!!
Janet, my photographer isn't sight challenged and definitely not of the kind that makes compliments, I usually like his frankness, except that day!!
So sorry if I forgot someone!
