Just a quick post to show you how my crocheted and soldered charms from yesterday have evolved. For these two, I ended up wrapping them onto etched sheets of metal. The one on the left is a chocker and the one on the right is a bracelet. Love them.
I put these two little ones onto a piece of ribbon. Sort of a mommy and me necklace. Believe it or not, the hardest thing I did yesterday was crocheting the teeny tiny flower with thread and encasing it in the tiny 1/2 inch by 1/2 inch glass squares (shown on the right).
The rain has stopped and I'm fully refreshed after a good night's sleep so I think I might go for a walk/jog after I gather my thoughts for the small talk I'll be giving tonight to the amazing group of women. Then onto paper clay and more crochet and soldering.
I was thinking to myself last night that with soldering, I feel that I've learned something as significant as sewing. I have so many ideas of other things to solder and imagine that I'll have my soldering iron close by my side in my studio when I get home. (I'll just have to remember to unplug it when not in use.)
Hope you're having a wonderful, creative weekend. :)
