Do you want to see what I've been working on lately? Too bad, I'm showing you anyway. You may recall the quilled necklaces I showed you before. I enjoyed doing those but came up with a new idea. Instead of doing the whole thing paper I decided to use a wood disc and glue the quilling to that.
Here's a picture of one of the older ones and the latest.
The first time I showed you the purple one it wasn't on a chain. Now I've put that one on a silver chain. The round one that I did before I put on a black cord and that one went to my friend Debbie.
I don't know about you but I like the idea of the wood disc a whole lot better. My biggest problem is I'm not real good at the jewelery part of it. I had no problem attaching the jump rings and the clasp to the chain. My original plan was to just put a ring in the wood disc for the chain. Blan B went in to effect when I discovered that the hole was drilled too far away from the edge to do that. My problem came in when I had to wire the wood bead to the disc. I made that first little loop in the piece of wire, slid the wire through the bead then through the hole in the disc. Now to wrap the wire under the bead to hold it in place. I realized how uncoordinated I can be some times when I was doing this.
The rest of the night I'm going to spend catching up on my emails, working on my necklace and a few little odds and ends that need taken care of. I'll catch up on all of your blogs tomorrow.
