Not in the manner I had expected. I've been sick most of the weekend, but things feel like they're sorting themselves out now. The cough is all but gone, and the fever has almost disappeared.
Because I was 'home bound' this weekend, I got started on some long overdue projects. These photos don't do the work justice, but will make up for it this week with photos of separate pieces, finished assemblages, etc. It was very satisfying to see the result of three days of work like this!
I'm liking the juxtaposition of the new pieces with the jars in the back, as though I have just spilled them out from another jar. Some of this series are buttons, and some are meant to go onto necklaces and a bracelet, like this one:
This bracelet, on elastic cord, needs restringing as I've created a focal bead that is still drying.
I have high hopes for these. I've been working on palettes all weekend, which is something new for me. In the past I've just thought, 'oooh, purple is a pretty color', and then I'd make 50 purple beads ready for 'something' but nothing more would come of them. This is different. And I can't wait to share them in more detail (if it only weren't 10PM already!).
The color of this photos isn't great, but again - the good camera will take better shots. These were glazed, and are both in the leaf palette from above as well as a gorgeous, 'by chance' sunrise palette. More tomorrow, for now - good night and have a wonderful week!!
