In a previous post I mentioned a box of jewellery WIPs I have lying around. Back in the autumn I started to tackle them, and some other WIPs lying around. It was slow progress!
I made some silver links and a silver heart in the silversmithing class Mr CA and I took in September. See here. I finally got round to adding some chain and a little porcelain bunny to one of them. They are designed to wrap round the neck, then the part of chain with the dangle goes through the coil to hold it in place. They don't really work and I need to rethink the design. They fall off a lot when I wear them.
Also in September, wonderful mum and I went to a mosaic class, which you can read about here. My tray needed finishing. I'd bought a little pot of tester paint and over Christmas I set to work painting it. Finally it is finished and in use!
In a ceramics class in August, wonderful mum and I made brooches. She had hers all finished and ready to wear the day after the class. Mine were ready in December! You can see the original post here.
The second from the left isn't ceramics, that's a beaded cabochon I made for a blog hop back in June!
It was nice to get these pieces out of the box and into use. I still have quite a lot of projects half-finished. I need to get better at finishing!
