FSOJ week nine

These earrings were started for week eight of FSOJ, which had the theme of The Goddess - Motherhood & Fertility. The idea came to me pretty much all at once, but getting the piece to come together was a different story. In the end I'm very happy with the result, but they took far longer than they should have. All wire is 20 g sterling, including the earwires, and the tiny balls are fine silver. This is the first time I've made earwires with balled ends.

Weeks seven and eight

Posted late today for both these weeks. I have an on-theme piece for week eight but it isn't done yet, so it'll be coming at a later date.
This is a little etched copper pendant. The bail is attached with a sterling rivet. I scratched the bail pretty badly when bending it into shape so I think this is going into the pile of experimental bits of metal. I like it though, so I may wear it myself and ignore the scratches.

These are lampwork by Julie Wong of Uglibeads. I've had them for ages and was never quite sure how to use them. Put together with a bit of bali silver and a black rubber cord they practically made themselves. I have a s-clasp that just needs some finishing touches that I'll be adding tomorrow.

Flu season sucks

I haven't posted recently because I really haven't made much recently. Several bugs hae been running rampant through the house for a couple of weeks now. I'm the only one who isn't feeling better today, so there is hope.

Hopefully I'll manage a FSOJ post tomorrow, only a week late, and then maybe I can play catchup soon!
