Our weather has been much nicer, we've even had several days of rain, the grass is getting green again.
I've been going for walks and working in the yard, going to doctors, doing a little shopping and I've been playing with clay and wire.... finished a couple necklaces and some odds and ends.
I'm working on a gift for a friend, a mixed media Cardinal brooch. I finished the wire frame, now need to back it with clay. I made a flower cane that I may use for the background, I will have to see how it looks. I used the cane to make a pendant/brooch. I also made a wire wrapped ring.
Click on the photos for a closer look.
Close up of the pendant and cane. I used gold PearlEx on the border of the pendant and in the center of the "dots".

Close up of the wire wrapped ring.... it looks really cool on... my attempts at taking a photo with one hand didn't work so you'll just have to take my word for it.
I also finished a "pumpkin patch" brooch that I've had laying around.
Here is the first of the two necklaces I finished. I like the colors for fall. I used brown wire, goldstone and blue fluorite beads for the chain.
The second necklace is a long twisted bead in the center with metal cones on each end. I made matching beads from the same clay sandwiched between lacy metal links and finished the necklace with silver rubber cord.
That it for this week. I'm working on new canes that I hope to have done in a few days.
Thanks for stopping by.
