To Weave my Mystic Crown.
As for the strength, Richelle, the brass wire is thick (16 gauge I think, maybe 14) and it's hammered. It's super strong. Actually, the stone itself is more likely to break than the wire is to get loose. But then, only if you take a hammer to it. And why would you do that, Richelle, why?
So yeah, the key is really thick wire. I should tell you I got my inspiration from Brenda Schweder who I was turned on to by readbetween. There's lotsa pictures of her stuff on
The Sole Nobility.
I was recently thanked for favoriting someone's stuff, lots of people see my faves in my blog or in their activity feed, I was told, and that would give them exposure. It's funny because now I'm so aware of folks seeing what I heart that it's more a performance than a personal catalogue. I never want to favorite findings or something I just want to bookmark. I favorite things I feel need to be seen! So that's weird. On the other hand, my most favorite person to see their picks in my activity feed is beadsnbones, who is constantly favoriting tons of supplies! Because, you know, I use supplies. So a big shout out to her!
Whether a Mote or a Star.
Oh, my attempt to cut down my Wellbutrine was a total failure. I'd forgotten how much I hated being horrifically incapacitatingly lazy every minute of every day. At least when only focus on jewelry I'm doing something. My husband said just take it, be happy with my obsession and forget about the whole normal person/personal hygiene thing...
My husband is the best. He hangs out with my parents when they're bored so I can stay here making, looking at people's faves and watching stuff like this gem CorvidDelights sent me.
Sigh. I miss my students.
