Plan B - Part 1

      Thought I would share some pieces that didn't turn out as planned.
I showed this in a earlier post.  Pretty as it is it didn't function, the focal was constantly on the inside of my arm.
  Really annoying, and not a design I would be comfortable lising.

Plan B
Not annoying to wear, stays where it should and I think the swirly design on the etched metal looks good with the cut steel.

And just to put it out there . .  Plan B needs a little tweaking.  The rivets stretched when I formed the cuff around the mandrel.  Sooooo, I'm starting on Plan C this afternoon, tiny nuts and bolts will be replacing the rivets.

And since things don't work out as planned I'll be posting Plan B - Part 2 soon.

This Weeks Post

Which I was going to post last week.
It's about sewing, free motion stitching and Lisa at
Surprise . . . how many post were there last week about the same thing?
Is it nesting?
I'm a nester, the only reason I leave in the winter is for food.

So here's a peek at my sewing project

Not a ruffle person so the sari ribbon was the perfect choice, a little girly but not
 foo foo.

And yes I totally copied the hangers from last months Where Women Create.

Last Weeks Post

Making rivets on curved metal was tougher than I thought it would be.

These are all small Victorian Bar Pins.

Finally finished


These are so tiny and they open.

Hope everyone is having a great week!

Still Celebrating

I hope everyone had a great New Year!

I would like to thank everyone for leaving such encouraging comments on my yes, no, maybe so post.

for the poetry challenge
So off she went, and here she is

Very exciting to see your work published!

I did managed to make a few pieces of jewelry over the holidays.
I'll post some pictures later this week.
