This and that
I'm slowly getting things added to my Etsy store. It's a slow process, taking photos and trying to display your items to their best advantage. At top is a necklace that has a very old mother of pearl button as the main feature, I've hand wired it so that it can move freely.
The earrings were made last night from some lovely glass hearts I found in the back of a little gift shop/cafe, Patsy discovered last week. My hubby and I went there for lunch during the week, needless do say I didn't get much eating done, but lots of bead sorting.
I have a very old wheelbarrow, on our back deck, that I painted purple. I 'planted' all these old rusty pieces, including a bike chain into it then added lots of succulents, due to our water shortage. I'm not sure if it's the rust, or lack of water, but they've grown a treat, almost hiding the rusty 'sculptures'.
I'm thinking of teaching some workshops from home either later this year or early next and this is the room where the classes will be held. We often sit and have breakfast or a cuppa in the glass nook as it protects us from the elements in summer and winter. I'll be posting the class details when dates have been set. The first one will probably be a brooch making class in late November.
