Last week was so disjointed, start and stop. Several days I made a "tool bomb" and headed off to class. I constructed most of her pendant minus the clasp.
After a full day workshop (grueling) on Saturday I sat down yesterday and finally made something wonderful. When my day was finished I decided to also finish the pendant. I looked high and low, low and high. I scoured my studio which is as neat as a pin.....now. Jewelry making involves a million elements that all have to be stored, beads, cabs, wire etc., etc., etc. I'm pretty organized out there though my husband would not agree. I couldn't find anything in his studio either (sticking out tongue). I probably spent two hours looking last night and more this morning. Garden, trash (yuck) recycling, his studio, mine again, his gallery Argh$#@*&#!
So I sat down and took a deep breath. You are a monk, a Zen monk I told myself breathe....I felt like a martyr waiting for the cat of nine tails. Why am I being punished, and I knew as soon as I finished a second one I'd find the first. I turned on some music and felt irritated, turned it off walked out on my deck........
It rained the boards are swollen, I tried girl style made a fish hook with some wire, no luck.
I was making a ring once with a tiny silver horseshoe element, when I hit it for the last time it flew out my door and I never found it. I imagine the mice have it hung over their door with the ends pointing up so their luck doesn't run out.
Happy week all, xo Ro
*tool bomb, you take an LLBean canvas tote and load it up with every tool you think you might need for the day, you always forget something.
