I decided to go back to the roots....my word of the year:
Here's what I've explored this week.....
In the early part of the week, I took a short 2 day trip down to Syracuse, NY; it was partially a business trip and partially a pleasure trip. I had time to take my time driving (to protect my spine), to see some things I probably would not have otherwise, and to do a bit of shopping. The Finger Lakes region is absolutely beautiful, it was a nice 2 days weather-wise, and I thoroughly enjoyed myself.
(Both of the above are pictures from my cellphone, so apologies for the quality).
When I got back home, I did some
messing around exploration and devised this:
The original work table is fairly high (a decent height for standing or sitting to work), but working on my jewelry was not happening, because I am unable to sit for longer than a half hour, and the strain on my neck was too great to work off the top of this table, standing.....but with a little experimentation, this works!
So I did some beading exploration of a motif which you may recognize....
(These are WIPs)
And explored a new (to me) technique which I've been wanting to try for quite a while now!
At last, I feel as though I've had a really productive, satisfying week!
Hope you have all had the same! See the other bloggers choices HERE
