I thought I'd share some projects that I have been working on with in the past little while (after complaining about creativity drain in my last post). The thing that's been so great about these projects is that they're just for ME. I find that I'm always making things for other people. Don't get me wrong- making things for friends (or for money$$) is wonderful too. It's just nice to take the time to work on things that are for numero uno once in a while :)
First: a linen and leather sailor bag!! I've been making bags lately for friends which made me want one too. I stitched my name inside to make sure I'm not tempted to gift it.
Second- My first casting project!!! I have to say I'm pretty impressed with this sucker for a first go around. I wear it everyday (which I have to stop doing because I need it graded before I loose it!) It is unbelievably satisfying to be able to make something that until a month ago seemed utterly impossible to me. Triangles are pretty much the theme of the new pieces I'm working on too- this ring has made me obsessed!
