I happy to find this bit of handwriting to use for this piece, it’s so smooth and dense.  It looks blurry on this post, but the original is quite clear.

Being away from the flotsam & jetsam of my workroom for so long I somehow fell out of the groove of assemblage.  Back to work the other day I was at loose ends, mainly in the mood to rivet, but not inspired by anything right away.   I finally made mini box with a beautiful dark pearl (from a lovely friend) and copper wire, I’ll post a photo later.  I need to get back into creating complications, moving parts, etc.

I have many partially finished pieces right now, but nothing near completion.  Plus I keep changing my mind about which way to go with my favourite bits, many of which include pearls and copper wire.  I am loving both the copper and steel wires I’ve been working with lately (and I always love pearls!).

This week I was at a few parties with people I don’t see often but whom I adore, it was a great way to start the year.  Eating as much fantastic party food as I did, maybe not such a great way to start the year.

This box is small enough to sit on a large coin, the jewel swivels and catches the light when it swings out.

I’m packing up the power tools for an art retreat, and finding that there is not really a good way to pack a drill, dremel, saw, hammer, scrap metal, varnishes, paints, and so many bits and pieces!  I am really looking forward to this, I had been planning on making some much larger pieces and some jewelry this month, but maybe what I do this week will change those plans.

construction

I’ve collected masses of material for my new project, now it’s time to construct.  Hmm, looking at my work space, maybe a bit of sorting and some organization should come first.
