Hi, my name is Audrey. Sometimes I do things. 95% of the time, I don’t do things.
I realize there has been quite a long bout of radio silence. I spend the summer pursuing other hobbies but then things got pretty complicated as fall rolled in. I don,t really want to lay my troubles here when you are all here for shiny things, but I will say that things turned out a lot better than I thought they would turn out at the time.
But I will always do my best to be present for events by the lovely Lori so, here I am agaiu. Doing things. Ot at least pretending I can do things. At this point, qualifying any of my stash as ‘hoarding’ was not a problem at all, but the problem was, rather, which bit and which piece ?
So I decided to use something I bought right before life decided to throw me a curve.
I love, love, love, LOVE Moriah Betterly’s ceramic work, and when she started doing kits of the months, this was the first, and I knew I had to snatch it up. I had a very clear idea of what I wanted to do with half of these amazing, tiny work of art, but I never quite got to execute the concept. They didn’t change much in the time I finally set out to do this. I set out to do at least two pieces, and that is what I did.
Again, I must apologize, these photos won’t be the best. I had a goalpost in my mind that pretty much consisted of finishing the necklace today (friday) to take pictures saturday to try to catch the scarce canadian light, then post sunday. Ha, ha ha ha… Anyone sees the problem here ? Thank to the amazing Lori for posting a reminder on facebook and therefore saving my ass so I acrually do have SOMETHING to show.
But every wrist shiny needs a neck shiny, right ? Well, neither pieces are shiny, per-se. But they are shinies. Trying to think up on how to translate the cuff design into a necklace wasn’t suer easy at first, so I settled into using mostly cloth with metal accents and more danglies. The necklace got a little heretic because I ran out of 24g wire at EXACTLY the last cloth wrap. Phew… That was a close one.
I can’t claim for sure that both pieces are 100% completely finished. Im not sure if I like the loops on the cuff, right below the butterfly. It looks kind of… odd to me ? I was thinking about cutting those loops off and using a pierced brass stamping to give it a cleaner look, but time got ahead of me. The necklace feels like it is missing something, too, but I can’t seem to think up what it could be. So feel free to put your thoughts and ideas in the comments !
Thank you for dropping by ! I hope the dust didn’t bother you too badly. Please give everyone else a visit as well !
