Tada! I finished the necklace I wanted to make with my cute little wire wrapped roundelle flowers. It went in a completely different direction than what I was going for but I still love it!
I was also able to finish a new ring with one of the stones I got in Charlotte. I wanted to do something simple with the stone because I wanted it to show more than my beadwork. I totally love the new piece and I told Sammy that if he was to ever buy me a new diamond that I wanted it to be as big as this stone! :)
Today at the store Vicki and I had Steampunk play day. Although I took a class last year to learn how to solder pieces like this, I taught her my version of how to make these fun steampunk componants. After some complication with the solder I was able to come up with these new babies. Some turned out really good and then some not so great. Instead of putting 5 of them on a thick chain like I normally word, I put each piece on it's own 18" chain. The necklaces turned out really cute espically for someone who doesn't like really extravagant pieces. I even made Sammy one so he could be "steampunked." Now what project to do next?
