faith in life

I have yet to pack and I leave first thing in the morning... its strange how I can get a burst of creativity when I have no time!


I made these cuffs and this bracelet today... they just started to unfold.


Its funny I have been taking a sewing class the last few weeks and for some strange reason all of my ideas are for jewelry... I guess its because when I am learning something new it always takes a little time for it soak into me before it comes back out... I am existed about all the things that I have been learning about sewing its a really changing my views on how I can put things together.


I etched brass to create the cuffs, then riveted silver to the tops. I have more ideas but they will have to wait until I get done editing my fabric book ~
