Hummer and Eagle
I have been doing all the prep work on the site and am at the point that I can start loading images and writing descriptions, doing more photos etc.
I really need some photos of somebody tall with an elegant long neck wearing these pieces.. I am checking women out in the grocery store as I shop... "hmmmmm ... yeah she would be great." Where's Audrey Hepburn when you need her?
After years of working on 1" buttons, it feels like I'm painting on a wall with a whole 2" disc.
I've also been checking out other sites and notice that most which have necklaces they all look alike- just different colors. I'm hoping that each piece I do has its own personality. That's my goal anyway.
Even though I do check out You-tube tutorials on techniques, I learn more just by taking things apart and looking closely how it was assembled.
And the most fun thing is that I'm using up YEARS of stash. I am constantly finding more things as I am searching through stuff. A good example is years ago I fell in love with a blue stone Buddha and used in on a necklace. I wanted some particular tiny metal bells for the bottom of it... 4 of them. But to get four I had to buy 50 and now I'm going to find a way to use them...redemption at last.
I let it soak up a goodly amount of water then I will bundle it and hang it in the barn to dry. I love having it for hostess gifts through the winter. Will cut more today..
The house smells divine.
