Well, it’s 2 a.m. I’m obviously teasing myself. I’m going to feel like #!%?!!#’* in the morning but I just can’t be bothered to go to bed yet. I’ve been doing an inventory on my jewellery materials and dreaming up new pieces. I need clasps, jumprings and wire, otherwise I’m good for now, I suppose.
I’ve always wanted to post this weird and funny image. Now it kind of suits my mood. Found ages ago from here, as always…
Here’s a new bracelet that I made the other day.
One night, just before turning off the lights, I grabbed the long strand of these lapis lazuli chips from their cotton pouch and placed them on the table. Then I picked up the powder coloured, opalescent (glass?) bead and a chunky toggle clasp, threw them on top of the lapis chips and went to bed. The next day I just walked past them and occasionally stared at them for a while. “What shall I do with you? I really like the way you look together. But you chips are a little dull even though your colour is quite striking. Then again you, mysterious, magical powder ball, you look like you fell down from the sky or an elf’s pocket!” The day after that I sat down and “Night sky” is what came out of it. And the day after that I made another one in green.
Chip beads that I had always considered a little uninspiring, are finally starting to grow on me! :)! What a relief!
