The Hurrier I Go, The Behinder I Get!
I have decided, however, to take some much needed Sue time, and put together some chains and metal clay items. First on the agenda is a sterling silver Columbus Chain. To call this weave slinky doesn't do it justice. Perfect for a bracelet, it lies flat against the wrist, and curves in a sinuous slither, terminating in a beautiful sun shaped toggle clasp. It still needs to be tumble polished, but is otherwise ready to be posted to Etsy.
Next up, are these Ionic Column toggles. I have paired this one with a Byzantine Chain. I love these toggles, the column hangs like a charm, and I'm thinking it will look great on a necklace, with ancient Roman or Phoenician Glass Beads.
Sometimes I wish there were two of me: one to take care of all of the responsible stuff like laundry and groceries and work; and one to play with the fun, creative stuff like chain maille and metal clay and hand made books and paper engineering and... well, you get the idea!
