Mid-Week Mutterings - Day 3 of 3: The Not Quite There Necklace
I selected one of the connectors from the set, and some chain, to play with, added the hooks which I've had in my stash forever and have no idea where from, connected the charms (leaves and owl from the set of cool filigree and charms I got from Steampunk Supply) and the two stars, then went to bed. I think I'd been in bed about ten seconds before I got the idea to add a moon peeking over the connector, which reminded me of branches - which is why I added the leaves and the owl in the first place. I trotted down stairs past my husband and the cats, to whom I'd just said "goodnight", and who were quite bemused at my rushing back down to my workroom in my jammies and slippers. Well, maybe the cats weren't bemused, but they did give me that cat look that probably means 'all humans are crazy' and I choose to interpret as bemusement.
The next day I stared at it some and took the following picture so I could stare at it some more. You guessed it, Still not quite there.

So those are the three works in progress for this week. I'm going to have to focus on building up my inventory for my November show at LACon pretty soon and the experimenting will slow down. I've still got a couple pieces in the pipeline to share - one with the new glass 'river rocks' from The Beadin' Path design partner package I recently received, that I'll probably be ready to share in a couple days and the Halloween necklace from my Rings & Things Friday Pick from two weeks ago.

I've got no idea what I'll be talking about tomorrow - I'll be sending off some interview questions to Rebeca Mojica from Blue Buddha Boutique soon and I'll have used the Wubbers tools enough to do a review of them soon, as well, but right now I'm stumped on what to do for tomorrow, other than I'm pretty sure it won't be a review or interview. I'll think of something, though, so I look forward to seeing you here on Thursday!
