Now for my new blog post - a few posts back I included a photo of the piece I'd been working on with Petoskey stones- newly forming, not nearly finished, I was and still am thinking of naming it "A Tribute to Michigan - sunsets, shorelines, and copper mines". I worked on it a bit, but never really liked the size of it:
So yesterday - upon contemplating what to do with it - THIS is what ultimately happened.
It is now three separate pieces.
I like this much better. I should have a finished piece later this evening.
Not quite sure what will happen with the other two pieces yet - I'm thinking one will be a brooch that could be worn in accompaniment to the pendant - but the third may have to go back to square one, with a completely different theme. OR - since I'm heading for Coyote tomorrow (in search of answers regarding the Mystery bag) I COULD just buy more flat back Petosky stones. Hm.....
I also worked on a new key piece this week. I wish I had another show to do before the holidays, because I think these could be a KEY part of my sales.
Oh well. Let's hope that keys are still a big thing when I start shows again in the spring.....and speaking of SPRING - it seems so far away when you consider that it's almost December!
Peaceful, holiday spirit-full beading,
