My computer desk is messy and there is items on the chair around the chair and pushed under the desk (I’d like to point out that it isn’t all mine!) and I believe it is stopping me from updating – as mentioned before, I wasn’t a fan of updating from the iPad!
Things have been a bit crazy, injured dog (my fault, but all good now!), injuring myself, experimenting with different techniques, items that shouldn’t be soldered together, soldering together (the brooch fastening on my Totoro – alas new fastening bought, soon to be attached!). So yeah, little hectic and not enough updating. I have made a light box so hopefully once I have a space set up I can get some better photos put up of items I have made.
I’ve never made jewellery for anyone for Christmas before, this year I’ve changed that and made some items for a family member, pictures will follow once they’ve been opened as I don’t want to tempt fate that they may be looking. Handmade is also going to a friend this year. I may get use to this!
I’ve been experimenting with Eco etching. My very first try and I had one of the connectors in the water, not realising that the solution would eat away at the connector. Oops. I tried again and something wasn’t working with one of the connectors, battery seemed to be working (did the old tongue check!!!) so can only imagine that either the wires weren’t sitting on the connectors or the attachment on the battery was no longer working. New parts have been ordered and delivered so I will be giving it another go this week, if it doesn’t work this time I may have to look at having a go with chemicals which I would prefer not to do, but I’d really like to give etching a go.
Task for the next week is to clear my computer desk!
New challenge at night class is that I want to creat something with a hinge. I’ve started on the “lid” of the item, once it starts taking more shape, I will share some photos
Must tidy desk.
