I have been neglecting you all terribly. Guess maybe the rain is getting me down. To say nothing of the unseasonal temperatures. It has been raining since we got back from the sunny Mediterranean Isle. And it is not warm. In fact, we have been having so much rain, that some areas of Bavaria are in danger of serious flooding.
Not my area, thank goodness.
But you didn't stop by to hear me whine about the weather (and I really don't want to whine, because even though it may not be pleasant, it is still moderate weather and not a natural catastrophe), so I will share some photos of flowers and random pieces of creativity that I have indulged in lately. Really, I have been doing things. Not just moping!
The following 4 pictures are some jewelry bags I made, using vintage and new materials. They were alot of fun and I can definitely see more of these in my future!
The first amulette I made - I ended up making another to give Max.
A ring I made last week - of copper, brass, filigree, silk rod, sari silk, organdy and vintage velvet.
Just for me and just for fun.
Remember that forged iron paddle I showed you last week - when Max was forging? Well, he turned that piece into this knife. Yes, I think we can call it a knife. Although, machete also comes to mind. It is big, primitive, raw. He even carved the handle himself.
Iceland poppies, full of raindrops.
Work in progress - some random creativity.
