WOYWW #140 - Something Else Theraputic!!

Happy WOYWW Week Everybody... Pop here if you want to have a sneaky peeky at the desks of the world - well a goodly few of  'em anyways!!! Hope you have had a good one?? Mine has been a lot less painful since I went to see my former Taiji teacher and "back specialist" par excellence. She did her magic and we had a nice chat... Thanks Peta...

Mum has been positively angelic today (Tuesday) and it would be fab if she was like that all the time... - it did mean I got some "me"time to make something!! HURRAH. - unfortunately she has had a run of horrid and difficult days, and I never did get to make my TIO tag!!! Boo hoo...

 So here is my desk... NOT untidy but productive!!! At last... I sorted last week, then designed in my head... then today, I fitted the bits together to make a piece for Miranda, to cheer her up. She has had no heating for a little more than a week!!! YES - in THIS bad weather... the man was there today to fix it, so I took the necklace and earring set down as a surprise!!

 There are new tools too... pink ones- QUITE unlike me, but then they are working whereas my previous ones were not so good anymore!! Spot anything else new??? See later for the answer...

 Here's the finished pieces. The photo is not good of the earrings, as the daylight got into the camera a bit... they are actually plum coloured like the necklace ones... it fits short on the neckline, with the pendant just below the little neck indentation (suprasternal notch!!!! oh  la la .. get me!!!)

 So here it is close up... I embossed a Vintaj round blank in a folder then rubbed to polish and burnish. Then I added some ickle stones to a Vintaj flower piece and strung the two together. It's very dimensional...

 These are some of the beads and Vintaj findings, Loving this ickle butterfly from a QVC set.

 The other side has a dragonfly - SO CUTE!! What do you think of my display area?? Cool and stuff, eh?? tee hee!!! and now for that newbie thingie on my desk from earler ----- taadaa!!!!!

It's my new block and hammer for doing rivets and such!!! I bought the hammer but didn't have anything to hit it on, so the fragrant Freddie treated me to this WONDROUS steel block!! It is SOOOO heavy, guys... NOT one to drop on toes, or anything else for that matter!!

Ok, I am away now to do my links, then off to bed. I have a TIME tag to finish for TIO tomorrow, in the morning, so hope mum lets me get on again... bye all and have a great week
Love and Light

fantastic jewelry & your economical display actually showcases it very well :) Your desk full of toys looks like so much fun too

Ann B said...

Lots of lusciousness on your desk this week, jewellery, shiny steel block and those tins - I have a thing about tins and those remind me of the little ones in my brothers Meccano set all those years ago, in fact I think we still have on in the shed with rusty screws inside.

Jackie said...

Your jewellery is fabulos.

Stephanie said...

All so very pretty--and I'm not a big fan of pink tools either. I'd rather have everything in blue!

mommyle said...

Oh WOW!!! Your desk is sumptuous!!! All of the little goodies! My DD would LOVE to be able to make a necklace like that. SO wonderful!

Julia Dunnit said...

I noticed the hammer, but of course, didn't think about the block...in my non jewellery making life, you use a hammer to hit the thing...you know what I mean. I'm glad a large heavy block of steel makes you happy...get you with new tools, all fired up and creative...the necklace is lovely.
