I have a lot of pieces in progress on the bead table, some nearing completion and some not so near.
I haven't decided what to rivet onto the etched cuffs at the top yet. Most of the time when I etch the cuffs the background comes out rather matte, like the middle cuff. I don't know how the other two cuffs got shiny. It must be a different metal content since I etched them just like I always do.
The twisty things are brass and copper bails. The "queen" pendant lacks a couple of body parts but has the patina and the finish coat, as do the two spiral pendants beside her. I finished up the last batch of pearls and have some more in progress.
Pawlie Newman is snuggled up in my lap impeding my typing. In a minute he'll tire of the typing and then he'll be on the bead table.
