I'm looking forward to the Hit & Run Happy Hour tonight at CS Gallery. More so because it's not a "show" with pressure to man my table, etc. There will be a central register in the gallery, so we can just relax and socialize. I'm planning on getting one of those $5 massages, you can bet on that. To my Columbus friends, I hope to see you there! Details are in my Mar 14th blog post.
Here we are at the halfway point of the One-a-day challenge. It's been a busy but fun month for me so far. The structure of this daily deadline has helped me streamline some of my process, and I'm especially happy to be making new friends :)
For today's earrings, I had fun again with my new tip (from yesterday) about applying heat near gemstones. The copper took forever and a day to ball up on the end, but it finally worked like a charm.
Onyx gemstone beads hang on copper wire with torch-balled ends, hammered ring, and darker patina for contrast. The sterling silver oval is shaped, hammered, and polished. You can see them here in my Etsy store.
Thanks for stopping by!
Note: If you'd like to enter the One-a-day Giveaway, just post a comment on any One-a-day blog post during March, and tell me what you think of a piece and why. Read all about it here.
