WOYWW - 67 - My First!!

I have looked at a lot of desks, surreptitiously, recently on this fab blog, WOYWW - What's on your workdesk, Wednesday.... I think it is a wonderful way to see others' work and what they are doing. I decided I would clear the decks a bit, and make more than 6"x6" square to work!!!

So above is my desk - well just over half of it with my latest project out and almost finished. I recently went to a weekend at Graphicus and did a great jewellery class using a lot of TH stuff. I liked it so much, I made one for Miranda, my daughter, and she wore it to school. Her colleagues were very complimentary and have asked if I will take commissions!! Woo...

The piece on the left is my original piece and the one on the right is the first of my new pieces to sell... I am so chuffed and really enjoy putting them together. At the top right of it, I made a tiny "Lynne" rose and painted it with eco paints... it is about half an inch across.


I put some alcohol inks on some of the silver coloured pieces, including the little rose bead here are the bottom of this chain. It made it softly rose gold... really sweet. I have started making Leandra beads too, and some from poly clay. Friendly plastic needs some more playing with, as I have not had much success so far!!

This 3D work is getting very interesting at the moment, so this is what is really on my workdesk this week. My challenge blog, DragonsDream Tag it On, will feature jewellery or beads etc in the challenge today too, so I am off to set that up. Please pop over and take up my dream, if you feel you would like to ... I would be more than pleased to see you there.



It is great having so much room to work, but it won't last and the places on the periphery are just as untidy as always... perhaps I will confess and show another time... Thanks for looking and leaving a comment. I look forward to seeing your desks this week...
Thanks
Frankie

Ooooooh....I love your space and your jewelry! I was in Michaels the other day and happened on a jewelry section they call Industrial Chic. If I had anywhere to put them, I would have bought all the pieces! (on my desk, I have a tiny 3-D birdcage that I got somewhere else and now realize its a pendant!) It looks like so much fun to put it all together. Thanks for sharing, welcome and good luck with your venture. =D

Hurray, it's fantastic to see your workspace Frankie, although I feel humbled. You have such a fantastic room and all this creation happening. I love your necklaces and am not surprised you've had requests. I'm also mighty impressed at your tiny Lynne roses. I was all fingers and thumbs with mine. Can I ask, what do you use to glue them, this seems to be my major problem at the moment. They keep coming undone!!
Thanks so much for sharing your industry.
Hugs Lisax

Welcome to WOYWW, Frankie. You are going to love it here. Your jewelry is fabulous. I love the use of buttons with the metal. The buttons soften the metal and give the jewelry a very feminine feel. Hop you had a good WOYWW. I see it's past midnight in your neck of the woods.

Hi Frankie,

Thanks for your comment on my blog, it's good to have some time to start blogging again. I love this piece of artwork - just stunning, and right down my alley! I can't believe how tidy your desk is, I haven't seen my table top in an age! xx
