Saying "Hi"

Dropping by the Blog to say Hi! :) My mind is more on Xmax gifts and shopping and house cleaning, rather than jewelry making at the moment:)

I'm starting to want to do some ambitious time-consuming jewelry project again, but I don't have a design idea as of yet, and I won't have time until over the Holidays when I expect to have some time off from work.

I'm sure I will have a post or two up during December, but I won't be very active again until the end of the year.

Just barely managed to pull off a submission to Year of Jewelry this week: The Ruby Brooch

The following pics are for my daughter's sake, becasue she doesn't follow my flickr account. To most of you it's old news:)

Oh yeah, while I am at it, let me throw in a failure:( This ring was what I was having so much trouble soldering a few weeks ago. You see the bad soldering if you look closely, and also the ring turned out way too big:( I want to be able to make soldered closed frames like many other wire artists do, but I still have a ways to go!
