Last week, my post was about my attempts to get myself in gear and out of idle mode…
I’ve been able to get some work done this past week, and probably would have finished more, had it not been for the fact that I get easily distracted. Pinterest is a big distractor for me…especially in the yummy recipe department. I blame the mouth-watering photos of the food. Recently I’ve been obsessed with meringues…so easy and they make elegant, light dessert bases for whipped cream and berries, aka Pavlovas. Or ice cream and hot fudge sauce.
My next distraction happened yesterday with a quick stop at a gift shop…spied these cool looking wine glasses that had been decorated with glass pebbles and wire wrapping. Of course, I rushed home and dug around in my cupboard for an old wine glass. Then, through my craft bins to find those glass pebbles I knew were somewhere in there. Eureka!
I did have to figure out how to glue those pebbles onto the glass first. E6000 seemed to be my best shot at it…but of course, they kept sliding down the glass. I finally decided to hold them in place with pieces of blue painter’s tape for a few hours til they were dry. Then, added the swirly wire wrapping with 18 gauge non-tarnish silver artisan wire. Bingo!
Kind of hard to photograph, but I think the solid background is better. Think my next attempt will be to fancy up a plain glass flower vase. Sweet.
Lastly, another pair of 14K gold filled ear threads with gorgeous pearls.
And I just may keep these too!
