Just a little post about the SAQA benefit auction. Please go take a look at the beautiful works of fiber art that are up for bid. The auction began today at 2pm and will continue through the end of October.
More news: I will be creating a NEW BLOG especially for artwork and jewelry that will be for sale.
Rather than sell through this blog I want the new blog to showcase the artwork only and you will be able to purchase directly from it. I will still keep this blog for showing pieces in progress and tidbits of info on the process. I will let you know when the new blog will be ready!

p.s. will post more jewelry updates later this week

Oh well, so far the new one is doing fine. I'm not using it for 5 hours straight every single day. I'm giving it some time off.
As you can see by the above photo, I have made quite a few pendants, there are even more that have not been photographed.
Since I decided that using the torch constantly was probably not good for it and the fact that I haven't actually made a necklace out of any of these yet, I decided to take a break from making them and concentrate on
completing a necklace. I also plan to do a few bracelets. But all of these are destined for necklaces right now.
The largest piece is going to be the cover of a journal, the smaller pieces used for a bracelet or two and then cut some smaller pieces to go into necklaces. I want to etch some brass and nickel as well but ran out of those 2 metals, so I just used copper. It etched really well, although from this photo it's hard to tell.
Not a very good day for photography today-cloudy & rainy.
But I did take a photo of the first 2 completed necklaces. Here they are:
Now I'm off to my work table to finish more necklaces. Will photograph more later.
