Wednesday's Jewelry Night

This is my first Wednesday without jewelry class. Even though I used to eat a frozen dinner in the car on the way to class (there was a good red light at Eagle), this class used to relax me. I would work myself into a tizzy to get there, but once I started working with my hands all my troubles would fade. The camaraderie was a bonus. I really enjoyed (most of) those women.

Pictured is the wire wrap donut necklace that I made last week. I went on a bit of a donut buying frenzy and now I have about 10 donuts to wrap.

This is a crap scan. I guess the dimension lent itself to blur. Please come to my house and find my camera--I haven't seen it since October 18th, and I have no idea where it could be.

This necklace features a gray iridescent donut. You can see the colors I originally thought of matching with it (green, blue, pink). Pink we thought was too 80s--not that there's anything wrong with the 80s, it was a really good decade for hair make-up clothes music me. Instead, I paired it with seed beads that were clear with some iridescence, some moon beads (hanging), a chalcedony disk, and a cute periwinkle bead. You can see my attempts at wire wrapping at the top of the donut and on the chalcedony. I had some trouble with the spiral and as I swore, people were laughing. I told them after five weeks I started coming out of my shell. Someone said, "remember that demure necklace she made the first week?" Demure, that's always a word people use to describe me.

Ah...memories.

That is LOVELY, even if blurry.

Maybe it is time for a new camera.

That is a list of 67 cameras for under a $100. Lots of them are more than 6 megapixels. I know you don't WANT a new camera. You want your old camera. but consider it a backup.
