I've just done a count and I have 9 necklaces made for the summer exhibition at Arteria. So just one more to go. I've done either a bracelet or earrings to go with all of them so far. Unfortunately I haven't always had enough matching beads to do both.
I had really hoped to use a lot more handmade polymer clay beads, but I've only been able to use them in two sets. I'm still waiting for the pasta machine to arrive. The first time I checked up at the website it said they were due in on April 16th. On April 17th I checked back and it said they were due May 20th. Then I realised that the UK was closed to air traffic so of course they wouldn't get their shipment on time! I'm just hoping that now planes are flying again they will get their shipment earlier than the 20th. It will probably be too late to make anything for Arteria - even if it arrived tomorrow I can't be sure I could make good enough beads to include. In the meantime I've been making copper and silver components - links and clasps - for some of the jewellery I've made. I've wasted so much copper wire! Fortunately it isn't expensive, although I've been really nervous using sterling silver wire as that is very expensive.
Now I've just remembered I need to make gift bags for most of them. I've about six large and two small made but I've run out of the lovely gold fabric so I'll have to hunt through the boxes and find something else suitable then get sewing! I have lots of the amazing gold brocade that I used to make gift bags that I'm offering for sale in my Folksy shop, (here) so I may decide to use that.
