On my desk


My workspace the other day.
I have been beavering away on a batch of necklaces.
Isn't it always the way, I set out to make a bunch of them to discover I have run out of wire. I'm now waiting for it to come from USA.
 At least I had enough to make a few.
Look at that lovely table cover - it's oilcloth from Beach Vintage.


Above are the almost finished pendants, not yet attached to the chain which is in a knotty mess from being hand-polished.

This is a one-off piece made from smaller optical lenses. I actually wasn't happy with the finish of this so I'm red-doing part of it. I'm a bit of a perfectionist at times and hate the thought that someone might purchase an item that is not perfect. I make more work for myself!

Thank you to those of you who have spread the word about the flood relief needed for the RSPCA Qld and the quilt making project Oz Comfort Quilts that I have posted about recently. There are so many other amazing projects out there raising money and goods for those affected by the floods. It's great!

Here's to a lovely Tuesday!

  3. Kerry, I'm not sure about Etsy-ing the jewellery as I don't think the gallery I supply would like it. Maybe if I make it a little different?
    Thinking...thinking..
    ps thank you!

  9. Your jewellery is very cool. And good on your for publicising the plight of our local RSPCA. They definitely need support after all their equipment/surgeries were destroyed. xx
