Sunday play

Was making some chain yesterday with bronze wire and had the idea that a hoop earring connected like the chain would be pretty cool. I messed around with that idea this morning and really like the way it turned out, lots of great movement in these.

Inspiration: day off

I love days off from work! I started the day off doing a resin pour on some pieces for the Ice Resin blog, I really can't wait to share this jewelry with you but it will be a couple of weeks yet. I then had a doctors appointment on a side of the city I don't venture out to often so I stopped at a scrap booking shop that is out there. It's been forever since I'd walked through and I'm glad I stopped. I wandered through leisurely taking in all the papers, ribbon and rubber stamps. I'm not a scrapbooker but I sure love paper. These are the items that I brought home with me for inspiration. I've already been playing around with scraps on my jeweler's bench with ideas sparked by my glittery bounty!

Just wanted to post a few pics that I took while in NY last week. I love these zip ties along the light post.

Tinsel Trading always has a fun window. This one reads" Inspiration by the yard".

Not sure what store this was but if you look closely at the column inside you'll notice that those are shoes completely covering the upper portion!

Glass hands at Fishs Eddy.

Hubcaps turned into wall lights at Tick Tock diner.

Window displays at Barney's, love them!!!

Well, we are down to our last couple of hours in Boston. Relaxing outside for a bit with a nice latte. The show at The Society of Arts and Crafts was very fun and I will be blogging some pics and more about that tomorrow after work.

NY to Boston

Just boarded the train from NY to Boston, looking forward to this bit of relaxation. Wish we had stayed another day in NY as we really didn't get to see as much as we wanted to but I'm sure we'll be back in the spring.
I did make it to my favorite shop though, Victor Osbourne hats.
