As usual I'm going Bead Table Wednesday at the very last minute. I'm busy getting ready for a show in October.
The "magic" necklace is about ready to be put together, although once I actually get started with the wire wrapping the design could change. I'm not sure how I will handle the big hole on the coin straps. The wings over on the left are some earrings awaiting their ear wires. In person the crystals actually show up.
I've finally finished the pendant portion. Here is the front and back. The escutcheon is not symmetrical. It's not so obvious from the front, but it shows on the back. I may even up the corner a little.
And here are some cuffs in progress. I've done the etching and the bottom two have an initial tumbling. I'm going to put some decorative rivets on the brass ones, and rivet a charm with some dangles to the copper one. Then there will be more tumbling, patina, hand polishing and sealing.
And these aren't exactly on the bead table, but I'm sure pleased with them. The zucchini have been frustrating me this year. I've had big beautiful plants that I have babied through all the hot dry weather, and not a single zucchini until I harvested these today. The little one was underneath the biggest one, but the flower was falling off so I went ahead and picked it. I guess we'll be having some stir fry veggies this week.
