WOYWW: Short, Sweet & Silent!

Howdy friends! It is Wednesday (OK Tuesday night in the USA!) and time for What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday! It is also the first day of school so I will have hours of uninterrupted creative time in my studio! woohoo! Of course I shouldn’t say that out loud or I might jinx myself hahaha! So yesterday I glued bails on some of the sea glass embedded pendents that I made. I rolled up some old book pages in some too, it is fun to see what words are prominent in the pendants, the pages came from old Edger Allen Poe books! I did some wire wrapping on some when I thought a regular bail was too boring.

Yep, a big mess! I hope to get more resin poured today, I wanted to try embedding fibers, buttons, glitter and letter beads in some pendants. I hope it turns out to be a sunny, dry day so I can cure some resin outside. I found that putting it in bright hot sun with a clear Rubbermaid tote over it for a dome works really well. I think it traps the heat and helps it cure. Plus I can keep most of the stink outside! That’s it for me today, thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!
