I Need More Hours In A Day!!!!!

There are so many ideas in my head. I really would love to follow all of them up.

I do have to work on my "Altered Objects" and "Recycled Objects" jewellery line. There are so many things I would love to integrate into my jewellery pieces: nuts, bolts, keys, buttons, fancy paper, drift wood. I guess, the list is endless.But at least, the big spoons have finally found their destiny: Not as dingly danglies for the garden but as big, chunky necklaces. I'll take them to the craft market next week and see what the folks on Arran think ...

And the mirrors: I just bought a fabulous book with natural history illustrations. Now I want to collage more mirrors. No, no, don't get upset! I will not massacre the book but scan the pictures first before I rip them apart. And I want to use boxes and stools and tables and... and (you get the idea?)... for my mixed media stuff. Can't wait to get my hands dirty with paint!

Apart from moaning about my lack of time, I had real fun with my bunny necklace. No, I'm not working for the Playboy! I was commissioned to make a bracelet with a lot of green beads, many different rabbits dangling from carrots and preferably in a gold tone. Sounds really challenging, doesn't it? It took me a while to work this out. But I think I like the result:

Yep, I had to forsake the gold tone on its own because I couldn't find enough different bunny charms.

Couldn't resist to add Peter Rabbit! Erm, and as you can see the Playrabbit found a place too...

Who would have thought that there are carrots growing in my bead stash...

And this week I'm going to work on some really bright and bold statement pieces of summer jewellery. I feel like mixing really bold and opposite colours and chunky beads with some unusual items.. I'll let you see as soon as I'm there!

  1. I absolutely love my new bunny bracelet that Assja created. It is much creative, exciting and beautiful than I could have ever imagined. I love it! Thanks Assja for another fantastic commission. Lisa
