Since last weekend, I've just been on the mend. My appetite just came back yesterday - which is why I'm planning a fruit and belgian waffle breakfast made complete by maple syrup in my head.
Before I head off for breaky, it would be nice to share my current work in progress projects. With Saturday being the first day I felt well enough to design other peoples jewelry, I feel like I've got a lot on the go.
This first piece has me stumped, but not entirely in a bad way. Beginning from a gemstone a good friend had gotten what seems like many moons ago, this bracelet will be born. My problem lies in how to finish it off. The colour strands are perfect, light blue and grey. Originally there was brown too, but decided to take it out.

The next steps, since its January 1st inception, will obviously be to finish it off. I'm thinking chainmaille linkage with the strands weaving in and out. What is your creative input?
This wowie of a piece is what Saturday brought the time about to design. This is what made me feel human again, as I realized how much creating plays a part of who I am.

Although not complete, it makes my heart sing. In fact, I already have the equally amazing two strand bracelet and dangle earrings planned out in my head.
This guys is something I've been playing with when my thoughts get slow. It's just a bunch of gemstone donuts on a string, really. Super simplistic, yet super cute.

I'll do a button clasp style finish, with the loose bead at the end, which will create more of an interest and flow.
This last piece is something I have yet to touch. Given to me by a friend at work, her thoughts are to recreate this piece she doesn't use, into bracelets that she will.

Underneath the crocheted beads she dislikes, are the pretty acrylic blue beads she adores. I'll take this all apart and give it the gift of glam.
Have a great day, hopefully doing what you love to do - or what you don't like for who you do love. Either one can produce some great results ;)
With all my heart,
