On a recent trip to Toronto to see Peter Gabriel, I bought lots of art and jewelry supplies to keep me occupied for a while. I was like a kid in a candy shop -- so happy to be surrounded by things that I love. Sadly, we don't have a lot of my favorite art supply stores here in Newfoundland.
I shouldn't say that I wasn't creative over the summer because I did learn how to hook a rug. I've always wanted to learn and a good friend of mine showed me how. I'm still working on it and I will post some photos of it later in the week. I have to say that I really enjoy hooking! :)
The beautiful earrings in the images above are made using 10mm green/yellow pearls wrapped with oxidized copper wire. It's fun taking something shiny and making it look old.
Happy Monday to all you lovely people!
