More Fun Than a Barrel of Minis...
Therefore, not much in the way of minis.
I have been working on this piece, a little at a time, for a while now. The center stone was the middle of a pretty old Native American turquoise bracelet. The stone was set in silver and by the time I got it, both sides had broken off. That is, the part that went around the wrist.
I found it in a bag from an antique shop. I refuse to throw away a perfectly good piece of turquoise. It was either take a chance of prying it out of the silver and breaking it or leaving it in the silver and working over it. I chose the latter. I glued it to a piece of gray leather and started beading around it and over the silver that was sticking out around it. So far, it's working...
This is what was more fun than a barrel of minis.
The new batch of squirrels are out in full force today... I don't get a lot done when they are chasing each other around the yard.
I am keeping my fingers crossed that they will grow. Just a little water and lots of rooting hormone on the stems. We shall see what they do.
I am going back to see what other mischief I can get into for the rest of the day.
See you tomorrow...
