In the meantime, because I'm too tired to do much else, I've been making jewellry. At least I can sit on the couch and not expend any real effort doing this.
Mom had chosen the colourful pendant ages ago and I haven't had time to make anything with it until now.
When I was in the bead store a couple of weeks ago I found two gorgeous glass elephants. I bought one for me, which I haven't done anything with yet, and one for Mom. I think she'll like him, he has a lot of personality. I made her a fairly simple necklace so that he takes centre stage.
Ages ago I bought some lava rock, which I like because of the texture. I made a necklace when I first bought it, but didn't like it when it was done. I took it apart today and started from scratch. I threw in some cloissone for colour. I think this one is better.
