Makin' Machine!

2 bracelets and some earrings:
 
Instead of resting as I should have, I ended up making all day. Big surprise, I know.
But loooooook! Neat stuuuuf! So what if I'm feeling like a big sack of shit?
Brooches:

I always overdo it when I start to feel better, and then I remiss. As in remission. Though that instantly makes me think of cancer and I don't even have a cold. I'm just wore out, as my Southern hubsicle would say.
Gotta admit, it's a whole lotta stuff.
These are all in my recent simpler style. One thing about simple, it sure is a lot faster.
Maybe it just feels faster. 
Oh! Did I tell y'all? I talked to my boss and it's official: after new year's I'll be working half as much as now. I think we all know what that means. Oh yeah baby! I'll be hermeted away at home, busy and happy in my own little world. OUR world, a world of beauty and joy and the internet. (Where the horrific things  my students describe happening in Mexico never happen.)

When I scrolled down and saw the praying hands necklace I found that I was holding my breath. I mean, it actually took my breath away. I adore the bracelets too! That Scotty dog looks a little familiar.....

ooooh love love the bracelets!! I love it with you bring in a little more femininity into your designs- maybe it's the buttons, or the colors.
delish!!

Oh my goodness - so this is how you get well?
The bracelets are just downright gorgeous (especially the one with the mother of pearl button - I adore mother of pearl buttons...) but I also love the last necklace - so unusual!
We all know now what you will be doing after new year's - and we will be sitting breathlessly in front of our computer respectively, swooning and swooning and swooning...

aw, thanks guys!
wow, these sure got a reaction right away!
that's interesting what you said lorelei cuz i didnt think these were particularly feminine. So, hu. gotta think about that one. They do have a little 'cute' to them, maybe that's it.
im so glad you guys liked these! yay, happy start to my day!
