Weekend Eye Candy, My Earrings!

I'm still dealing with little Miss Lilly and her surgery, so the easiest eye candy to post was my own recently finished earrings. They are Copper Clay, Silver Clay (PMC), some beads and bits of sterling wire where needed. I hope you like them!

These and other photos can be seen on my Flickr site:

I know Paige is at a huge craft fair in S. Dakota, so I doubt she'll have time to post, but ya never know, so check out her blog as well as Lora's and Christine's to see some yummy "Eye Candy"

I'd rather be blogging!

I'm having to take this weekend and possibly next off from blogging because my precious little girly dog (bottom photo) had a very major surgery. It's all me and my husband can do to keep on top of taking care of her. Just look at that sweet face. She is more than worth it!

Many other things are being put aside because she needs sort of constant care right now, but when I'm back in blog world, art world, jewelry world, I hope to have some photos of more recent work to show.

Meanwhile, her boy friend (top photo) is taking it all in stride. He is such a good boy! Look at those big orange eyes!

Gotta get back to the patient......hope to post soon.

Weekend Eye Candy, Inspirations

1. Is Time Linear?, 2. Metropolis, 3. Round and Round, 4. Phidippus mystaceus, 5. Against the Colors, 6. silent white... ♫ egrets from bali ♫♫, 7. Hypnosis, 8. All those lines..., 9.Chandigarh Legislative Assembly

This week I'm focusing on inspirations. I love black and white polymer canes, really graphic designs and geometric shapes. Sometimes when I need inspiration I look at pictures. Pictures of anything and everything!
So I went on the hunt for some photos that could be inspiring. If you look at a good black and white photo and squint so that you are not seeing the detail anymore, it might reveal some interesting shape and give you inspiration to create.
Also, when looking at something you just made and wonder if it needs something else or if it is a balanced design, squint while looking at it...... it really helps. Also turn it in all directions. If it looks good upside down, etc. that is a pretty good indicator that it is balanced.
I also find photos of architecture at interesting angles good places to start a design, a painting or whatever your next project is.
So have fun squinting, and don't worry about the wrinkles...... hah!
I'd love to hear what inspires you, where you get your inspiration from, or if any of these images gave you inspiration to start a project.
Check out Lora's and Paige's blog for inspirations and new Eye Candy picks.
