Calm Before The Storm and/or All Is Calm All Is Bright
They’ll have their work cut out for them tomorrow, we’re expecting 8-14 inches of snow followed by a string of storms on alternating days. Looks like we’ll have a white Christmas which isn’t always the case. I can’t complain because we’ve been lucky so far, my sister and family just went 5 days without electricity. Check out their ordeal here along with some pretty cool photos.
Today was the calm day. It was sunny even which is a pretty rare event around here these days. I was able to get a couple pictures of a new design that I’m working on.
I found an online tutorial on forming your own earwires as opposed to using what’s available commercially. These are made out of what I think is 22 gauge (it was sold to me as 20 gauge but I believe it to be thinner and 22) sterling silver wire, hand formed then hammered for looks and strength. I love the organic look and the more handmade I can make my jewelry the better.
Look for these and more like them to show up in my shop, soon.
