Work in Progress

Well, it certainly has been way too long since I've posted anything here. Now that the Christmas rush is over though, I have a little more time to actually work on new jewelry.

Speaking of time and new jewelry, here is a piece I started working on the day before Christmas. It's still a work in progress though. So far I have put almost nin hours into it. I still have to decide what kind of chain to make for it. I think once it's finished it will be well worth the time and work I've put into it though!

I'm posting a few pictures of what I have so far. As always, click the thumbnail if you want to see a larger picture.

These first two are the pendant. I was originally only planning to make the pendant and put it on a ready made chain, but after I saw it finished I decided I had to do more.

This one is the second part of the focal piece. I'm not sure if it looks more like a bra or owl eyes at this point ;)

This last one is the completed focal piece.

I hope to have this piece in my shop before New Year's Day. That is, of course, if I can decide on a chain by then.

The Etsy MiniBlog - A Great Place to Find a Few Last Minute Gifts!

I've actually been meaning to blog about this for a couple weeks, but, as usual, my brain decided to make me forget every time I got on the computer.

Last month several Etsy sellers came up with a really great idea. They've made a blog that's full of handmade items from many other sellers. It's a great place to find one of a kind items that are made by hand, full of love, for the people you love.

Also, if you make something and sell it on etsy, you can go sign up for it. It's open to all Etsy sellers. Here's a link for more information.
