I'm having a hard time finding much time for jewelry right now:( I get distracted when the chore list gets too long and seemingly out of control.
I have gotten some paper work done and a few home repairs struck off the list. But, you don't want to see pictures of that do you? ;)
On Sunday I was able to focus long enough to make two moons. I really enjoy the moon design series and feel a strong sense of connection to them while I work.
For months now I have attempted to come up with a mix of brass and sterling that I hoped would give a look of 'old world' to a design. I've tried different sorts of finishes and have been unhappy with results so far. This brass and sterling moon brooch seems to have finally gotten the finish results I was wanting. I'm not sure I like it enough to do a whole series with this look, but I would like to see it again with some amethyst in the mix.
Since I've been listening to Neil Young in my car this week, I titled the brooch "Harvest Moon".
