Pairs and Solos, New Ancient Pieces

Another friend sent me a parcel of collected items - right out of the blue, I didn't know it was coming.

This past weekend, in spite of the snow and the cold, I made up some molds and took casts off some of the pieces, and I really like how they turned out.

I gave them a dark polished patina so they look worn and ancient.

And it's funny how they go together so well with some of the pieces I had already taken casts from, they would look lovely together. Even with some of the charms I've been making for a while now, like the fleur de lys charm, they seem to go together.

Makes my fingers itch to make them up into some jewelry.

With lovely pearls and lots of faceted glass beads, or dark onyx round beads, put together with a rosary wrap wire connection.

Getting these surprise packages is fun! I don't mind that at all and hope I can do the loaned pieces justice.

Like these two little tassels. Wouldn't they be fun as earrings?


Well, it's back to the day job today, for a few days. A drive through the snowy streets, bundled up in a hooded coat with leather gloves and snow boots.

New Year's holiday is coming. Do you have special plans for the end of the year?

Those are awesome! You continue to amaze me.
New Year's is spent with my family at home. No crazy parties and all night gigs for me.
Maybe I will catch some of the sleep that has eluded me this month.
Enjoy the day!

Those are so great. Your so talented.
The New Year for us is always spent at home. Fire in the fireplace,a glass of wine. We're lucky if we make it to Midnite.
