back and forth

My two lives. My late night/early mornings life of mad crafty energy, where my fingers itch to create and my mild mannered day life of teaching, biking, tennis and the love of my life!

Wire

Mmmm, this pic is just for me. It's my New Mexico, soon to be Phoenix, AZ boyfriend.



Eventually, California boyfriend!




Handsome, isn't he?



Back to crafty! I've been obsessed with wire. I did a series of bracelets and necklaces combining a couple of classic Eni techniques in one. Here's one using a beautiful Chrysocolla/Azurite cab I did from a slab I got at the Happy Valley Pow Wow last year.















BUT....I've been seeing these wild and crazy wraps at http://www.metalworkers.org/ and it talk about pushing the envelope and sci-fi looking creations! I had no idea how to start. Couldn't find anything on the net, no books, ?? So I tried on my own. Yikes! This was the result...
















And then I turned back to Remy and from her absolutely amazing tutorial, and I created this. I spent countless hours, I stayed up until 3:30 am working on it, I picked it up and wrapped and wrapped even before I ate! Lol.

I think I'm hooked. I'm almost regretting the timing of my Oregon tour! Silly me. Good thing I ride, cause otherwise all I'd do is sit on my bottom doing these things...
