Slow Day

Nothing as exciting as my metalsmithing class today, I’m afraid. I did start another bracelet – am finally getting the hang of fusing without too many bad rings. I have a couple of friends who are getting bracelets for Christmas, and for once I have decided not to wait until the last minute.

I did take a couple of – hopefully – interesting photos, but was using hubby’s camera & it’s more complex to upload from, so I can’t share just yet. I’ll try to get them ready to go for tomorrow.

Stay tuned.

In the meantime, how about checking out the Thai weave bracelet I made the last time I took a metalsmithing class from Lillian…

We finished it in a day long class, but I ended up with a migraine from all of the detail work by the time we were done! I’m always ridiculously proud when I wear it, though – so I guess it was worth the headache.

I love her classes. She’s doing one next month with scrap silver and I can’t wait to go and play some more!

    My friends are getting the simpler weave bracelet in the previous post.
    This one was enough of a headache – literally – that I don’t plan to attempt it again any time soon.
    I did do another bracelet with a different weave – my first – but sadly I lost it on an airplane recently. I’m still bummed out about that! I think I have one picture of it but it wasn’t a very good one… so no real possibility of a pic there. I suppose I could photograph the ring, but my friend knows I made it for her – had to get the ring size – and I want to preserve some sense of surprise. Have to disappoint you again. Maybe after Christmas.
