Just Letting Off Some Steam ~ With Art

Here's a few WIP's. I'm really biting my tongue with all the hub-bub surrounding our move. I say the Serenity prayer in my head to keep it from exploding & having dirrhea of 4 letter words coming out of my mouth. Please keep us in your thoughts when you have a moment. I can't bare the thought of my kids being separated from dad for an entire year. I personally don't know if I'm strong enough to do it.Anyways, here's my therapy, I mean artwork.
I made the crown one last night & made the other 2 today. I'm having too much fun layering. I contemplated making them into rings, but decided to make some pendants instead. They include buttons (new & vintage), filigree stampings, vintage brass findings & cabochons.
I also finished crocheting my first necklace. I used silk thread, teardrop beads & a crochet hook. Thank goodness for online tutorials. I need good pics & instructions. The zine in the pic is Jewelry the zine by Catherine Witherell & Deryn Mentock. I saw the article in there by Ruth Rae & I couldn't get it out of my head.

Hey Nerissa,
Just a quick note to let you know I'm thinking about you! Hang in there! Crossing my fingers & saying a prayer that things work out the way you want them.
