Black Tie Affair
I made another tassle, or lariat, necklace since my first one was already purchased from my etsy store. This one has a 24" silver chain and toggle clasp. There are five strands to the lariat ~ pearls, glass beads and a silver filigree ball all dangle playfully from it. I am in the process of making one more that's just a little different, both chain and bead-wise. I'll probably put that one on etsy, too. Which means that I'll actually have to make a fourth one so I can wear it myself ~ I LOVE it!
I'm also working on a charm bracelet, although my time has been spread thin lately. What with maintaining the etsy store and this blog, and trying to educate myself about social networks, art-related and otherwise, I could be swallowed whole by this computer and not come back out for about a billion light years. It's both exciting and frustrating at the same time. On the one hand it's amazing to be learning so much, while on the other hand I really want to be just making jewelry. Hopefully I will eventually find a happy medium.
Time to put the kids to bed and then (hopefully) create a precious treasure I can share with you soon. Ciao.
