A Lot to do about Nothing #2

AK! Blogger took to my original post and hacked out photos and other funny stuff, so had to delete and repost.
Grrrrrr now where was I oh yes. . . 

Started 3 weeks ago. DH went to our old house and picked up my glass kiln - all 1 & a bit tonnes of it! Drove back in the pouring (unseasonable) rain. Successfully man/woman handled into the shed.
Our plan was to go and get the last of our furniture the following weekend. More rain so we delayed.

2am start for the 5 hour trip. Loaded furniture crashed at son's joint for the night and left early the following morning.

Successfully man/woman handled that lot into the shed. 

Make mental note: I am getting toooo old for all this lifting, heaving, shuffling and carrying shit. Took me a few days to recover and I have the bruises to prove it.

Was hoping this week that the steel main frames for our house would be delivered and installed, but looks like next week.

On the jewelery front played with making random shaped holes in copper. Don't have a proper jeweler's saw, just a crappo from the hardware that ain't up to the job. So grabbed the hole punch pliers and nibbled an organic shaped hole. A quick rip with the file to remove the sharp bits and hmmmmmmm this could work.

Decided to do an overfired white enamel finish, but loved the effect on the 'back' better.

Now do they work with the danglies?

 or without?
Mmmmmm Dunno. . . .
But I do love the colours.


  1. Congrats on doing all that wo/man handling of stuff - hope the main frames show up soon...
    Love the earrings - I vote for with the dangly part. BTW, I have a WIP with an irregular open space in it too...

  2. I'm getting toooo old to do all that shuffling, hauling, and moving too. But it sure is nice when you do get it done. Love the looks of that enamel. It's got great gradation of color. Like the earrings best without the dangles. Like them with the dangles too. Umm, I don't think I could make the decision for you.

  3. I will never, ever bitch about my working conditions again! You brave
    the elements in a SHED to make jewelry!? Love those irregular holes and
    your spirit. either dangle or no, both work

  4. The irregular bug bitten holes and enameling are wonderful. These are beautiful. I love them with the dangles. Pulls the bead line down into Oh Ya!

  5. I vote for the dangles too. And I second everything that PipnMolly said.

  6. Ditto. Love the shape, colors and dangles. Wonderful. Hope the aches and pains quickly subside.
