Fluxing and Soldering Woo Hoo

Well yesterday I bit the bullet and bought a soldering iron and some flux....

I decided to take the plunge and just do it this afternoon. I took some of the fabric that I had painted and dyed a couple of weekends ago and I got a nice aqua blue pin and wrote words on the fabric. I encased it the fabric in glass and added the copper tape and off I went.

I have now figured out I need a third hand jewlery tool. Who knew you could just go out and buy a third hand....

Anyway, even without the third hand I managed to attach two o rings onto the top and bottom of the piece. I attached a small fabric tassle that was out of the painted fabric with more words written on the strips. I attached some aqua blue finding beads to the strips and on the back of the strips where they attach to the o ring. Then I dug through my stash and came up with double sided silk ribbon from Gloriana Threads - Wood Pond- the color matched perfect. I added two charms from Charland on to the ribbon and tied on and it is now going out to dinner with me....What fun-make a necklace in less than an hour and wear it to dinner.

I am now thinking of all the things I can now do with this and the new bracelets that I am making...Let the games begin!

Have a wonderful rest of your weekend.

We will start Advent here in the house this week. We have two trees up and some of the ornaments on is starting to look like the holidays in our new house.

New Piece

I am working on a new piece for a secret mission....Wool,colorful colors, mermaid, moon and stars....I have done research on South American and mermaids. I have found that in Bilivia the natives mixed mermaids in with Saints in the church. They regard the mermaids as sacred as the Angels and Saints. More research needs to be done on this subject. Very intriguing....

Well, Look for new pictures in the near future.

I just finished a new retail piece. Hope to have pictures soon.

New Ornies!

Santa Ornamnet

Noel Ornament

Tree Ornament

Here are the new class pieces that I have been working on. Mixed mediums is the name for the day. The pieces are worked on wool with printed pictures sewn onto the fabric and then the pieces are covered with used dryer sheets then embellished with surface embroidery. They are quick and fun. I will be talking with Stitch Pretty this week and hope to line up dates for the pieces to be taught.

I am working on a jewlery travel roll up class. I am thinking about using fabric from old clothing found at thrift stores for the base....I will let you know how that works out.

Hope you enjoy the pictures.


Happy November

This is All Saints Day, or if you are Hispanic this is Day of the Dead. May we all honor our loved ones that have moved on today. Take a moment to reflect on what that each and everyone of them did for you while they were on earth with us.

You may not be able to make a visit to their grave. But you can keep them alive in your memories. Tell stories about them to your children or friends.

Celebrate their lives by keeping them alive in your hearts.

I am off to make some ornaments for a new class that I am developing.
