This weekend has been great creatively and personally. I'm relaxing, starting the slow process of packing my bags for two months away from Brazil and packing my house up for a quick move once I return. I've made a lot of jewelry. My back hurts as a result, because I work on the floor. I know it's not the most intelligent place. I think I do it because of laziness. Working on the floor in the spare bedroom means I don't have to clean anything up when I'm done; I can leave projects half finished and know that they're not accidentally going to get mixed in with the lasagna, as would surely happen if I worked in the kitchen!
Here's some pictures of the latest goodies, most of which will be going to the Projeto Vidinha fundraiser:
These first two necklaces are made from wooden beads and seeds. Very Amazon and hippie...
This necklace is made of purple glass beads and a turquoise colored glass accent, with two tiny (real) turquoise chips. I made a pair of earrings to go with it as well.
Remember that sodalite necklace that wouldn't photograph? I'm still not sure if I'm going to make it a ribbon or a chain necklace...but I'm wearing it here, as I talk on the phone with a friend...
and a similar style is shown below, made with gold colored glass beads.
It's been hard to hold myself back to just making fairly inexpensive items. I can't wait to start working with silver and semi-precious stones again!
