Good Morning, Good Morning

Do you remember the post where I showed the beautiful filigree piece that Andrew Thornton made using one of the resin word charms?

Well, I really wanted to play with that idea.

And I mentioned that I had drilled some of the resin charms from side to side, so it was like a bead.

I started playing with the oval filigree that I have, and found out that serendipity is alive and well!

The holes in the ends of the filigree matched perfectly with the holes I drilled in the resin. I didn't measure, or do it intentionally. It just worked out!

I probably should say that I thought it up, carefully measured and adjusted, but it really didn't happen that way. Somehow that makes it even more fun, it makes me smile even thinking about it.

So I threaded a wire through and made wire wraps, and next I want to put some pearls and crystals onto headpins and add around the word charm, attached to the filigree.

Very cool! Next time, I'll have to do it on purpose, instead of accidently!

Thanks again, Andrew. You started the wheels turning, for sure!

The insommnia is back with a vengence, I'm getting up after only 4 or 5 hours of sleep. You'd think I'd be dragging my tailfeathers the next day, but I don't seem to feel more tired than usual.

I'm still off caffeine, so maybe I just need to do something to wear myself out. I know! I could decorate the Christmas Tree (no, I still haven't done that) - maybe on Christmas EVE!

Very cool Lynn. Can't wait to play with mine too! Love the bead and the idea of wiring it like that. Don't you work too hard, okay?

I think that's what they mean by being fortuitous :)

Kinda sounds like you aren't suffering any sleep deprivation symptoms so look at the bright side, all that quiet time, with no one making demands. I think you should designate it as "Lynn Time"!! :) You do know that as we get older(not that I'm saying your old mind you)our bodies require less sleep?? :):)

Thank you for sending the piece! I'm glad that what I do can provide a point of inspiration to spring board off of.

The possibilities are endless working with filigree and your resin pendants!
