Did you know

that jewelry making can drive one insane? Apparently it can. This pendant gave me fits. Everything that could have gone wrong did. I barely survived its creation. But I'm glad I did, I think it's pretty cute. *grin*

I sawed the flower from sheet metal, then soldered on a fine silver center, textured the yahoo out of it, oxidized and called it a day. Or two. It took me two days to make. I think I want to make a few smaller ones for matching earrings and a ring.

Have I mentioned that I love working with sheet metal?

Very pretty!! You have such talent.

Yeah..the cat worming...I never could keep up with the piece of paper I'd write their weights down on, so I just made a quick text page and slapped in on my desktop. Much easier to find than hunting down a piece of paper!! :-)
