I decided to make a piece honoring the most prolific creature in and around my house.
We have them in all shapes and sizes.
Spiders, cockroaches, crickets, rolly-polly, you name it...
but, my least favorite are the things that fly and sting.
Wasps terrify me, hornets horrify me, bees are the bane of outdoor living and mosquitos think I taste like Snicker's bars.
So, why not create a piece to honor the creepy crawlies (and flyies...).
This one is the Hornet's Nest. A big piece of Silver-Leaf Jasper with stripes of matte gray and mustard yellow to mimic those sported by the ever-present hornet (No fear, this one won't sting).
Here's to facing fears head-on.
I also couldn't resist another Steampunk Ring.
4 o'clock on the dot this one reads.
A bit of history frozen in time and brought to the modern era.
I like to think I gave this particular watch face another lease on life.
I think it earned a second chance, this time with all the glamour and none of the work.
A little dark, a little dented, but every bit as lovely.
Oh, and remember this?
I made another one.
Which I promptly attached to the first one.
Now, I have this huge chunky pyramid bead.
Now, what to do with it?
Before I go, Kitty wants to know....
what exactly have you been doing to stay cool this week?
