Abacus Earrings

     These (well, the beginning of a pair of earrings) are almost too crude to post, but wanted the "class" to know that I am working on them. In fact, I am procrastinating on packing for my trip (leaving Tuesday afternoon) to do a short workshop with DJ Pettitt (ah, bliss, for sure) and continuing with PSE9/CS5 with Marie. However, I will have time for that upon return since I am only gone five days excluding travel. 
     I used a "JoAnn Fabric" purchased copper wire for these, which is coated and therefore does not patina; my copper wire has not arrived yet. These, also, are 16ga instead of 14ga. My sterling silver has not arrived either; and, I truly don't wish to use fine silver for practicing right now.  Thus, "it is what it is, right?"  I feel these will be fun to make and I have beautiful beads to play with!



part of my workspace... "We Can Do It!" I reiterate... always!

waiting for supplies is always a hard wait. Have fun with DJ!
