Adventures in jewelry making

A Good Day… October 20, 2014

I know I’ve got my creative making juices flowing again when I wake up

in the middle of the night and can’t go back to sleep

because I’ve got all these ideas for jewelry in my brain.

Gave up on the sleep and got up in the dark.

Confused the dog who thought it was time for breakfast at 4:00.

Made stuff until I ran out of ear wires.

Need to work on that tomorrow.

Here are just a few things I finished today.

    I totally understand the 4 o’clock jewelry-making session – I have done exactly the same thing! I really love your wire work, and I particularly love the textured Sterling bar and chalcedony briolette necklace from this post. So pretty!!

    Beautiful creations Lynda. Congratulations on hour achievements. I love all the earrings but especially the giveaway pair. The boro beads are gorgeous. What is that pattern?

    • Hello, Mona! Yes, aren’t they beautiful! They’re a Unicorne teardrop shape in a sea green mix. Sorry I don’t remember the exact name of the color, but pretty sure they are fairly common to purchase on the internet.

    I love all these new earrings, Lynda. I know what you mean . There’s been many nights when I’ve wanted to get up and work on jewelry but it would wake up the whole household so I restrain myself and just do some drawing and surfing the web. I love these etched copper earrings and would be thrilled to win them.

  14. Beth Hagman Says:

    You’re always inspiring, Linda. I particularly admire your copper work…

  15. I often get those middle of the night jewelry-making urges and get some of my best creations then. There is something about being up when the rest of the household and neighborhood is asleep that is intoxicating somehow. Your session was amazingly productive. So many lovely earrings!

  16. Brenda Heald Says:

    Love the feather etched earrings

  17. Candy Watts Says:

    Hello, Lynda. I saw this on the Lima Beads site, to which I am now addicted. I’ve been a beader for about five years now, but my friend and I sell in our church during our coffee hour between services, and the monies go to missions projects (local, national and international); so far we’ve donated about $10,000, so we are very thankful for our faithful customers! I see you are also interested in faith-based initiatives. :o) Your jewelry is beautiful, and inspires me to take on new challenges! God bless you and yours..

  18. Love your designs as always!

  19. Terri G. Says:

  20. Laureen Says:

    I am always so inspired by your creativity and enthusiasm. Love all the new earrings and thanks for the inspiration……
