Year Of Jewelry: Week 11

I really haven't spent a lot of time in my studio this week.  I really hate it when life interferes with my studio time as that time is what allows me to recharge while my mind is taking time off.  I am not going to allow doctor's appointments or whatnot to interfere again especially as I am still working on my Bead Soup pieces.

The theme this week was 'Rescued From The Scrap Bin.  Now I don't really have a scrap bin as I tend to reuse everything I can.  Well I guess that's not true as I do have a little container filled with sterling silver wire.  I have ordered a torch so I will be able to make my own headpins but the pieces in my bin are too small to do anything else with them.

So I used what I had which is a container fill with broken jewelry that I have picked up in various places and I dug through there.  I didn't have a lot of time to work on a piece as I finally was able to whittle out a small block of time yesterday so I went with quick and simple.

The focal is actually an old earring where I used the earring post to make a bail and the chain is off of another retired necklace. Very simple with quite a bit of bling in this necklace.  I am going to have to scramble some more among my old earrings to see what I can come up with.
