Last week I completed my daisy bangle. This is the first bracelet I have ever made so it presented me with some new challenges. Metalwork isn’t like beadwork in the sense that you need a fairly good plan of action especially with something that combines soldering and wirework with glass beads. Copper wire is such a good conductor of heat and with that much wire you don’t want to end up with a glowing pile of wire and cracked beads! I’m pleased with the claw setting and it was nice to use one of my smaller glass cabochons in a completely new way.
Work on my Spice Trail neckpiece has resumed at last. The central section is done and the sides are progressing well. I’m really loving all the glowing colours in it and it certainly cheers up a dreary wet day when I’m working on it.
Mr J is on the mend at last. We are down to just once weekly visits to the GP and he is enjoying walks with me again. He is taking me out for a meal tomorrow as it’s Valentines Day. Lovely!
