LATElatelatelateLATE! I'm Late!

Never mind the nod to the White Rabbit, I'm just plain ol' late! I know I put a brief post up on Sunday, but I still didn't get back here to post any pics of anything for either the Solar Flare or October-Fest blog hops. 

Anyway, what I ended up doing was combining the two hops into one piece... well,  two pieces of jewelry, a necklace and earrings. (of course, those who follow me know I can make just earrings, but I can never make a necklace without making earrings, too.)  So, here's the set I made, combining them for both hops (which I hope everyone visited the various blogs who were ON TIME with theirs):

Not sure what to title this set ~ but the necklace links are
copper tubing that I hammered the snot out of and textured
to a fare-thee-well before coating with Renaissance Wax so
neither they, nor the wearer, would turn green
closer look - wire wrapped a fire agate for the pendent
represents both Autumn AND a solar flare rather well, thank you!
Yes! I hand made the clasp! I am so PROUD of me!
(pats self on back, pulls a tendon ~owie~)

wire wrapped some sari ribbon as an accent
to the fire agate sticks. LOVE! that color ribbon
Again, apologies to the hosts of both hops.  I always gripe about those who sign up then don't show whenever I've joined a hop and here I'm the culprit this time. :(  


  1. Love the colours, love the textures, Love the earrings :-D

  2. Love the fire agate and Autumn design!
