Only wire for today

These pictures show my results at trying Sarah Thompson's "Chalice" pendant design in wire weaving. I followed the instructions in her article in "Step by Step Wire Jewelry" magazine, Oct./Nov. 2016 issue. This project was quite challenging for me, but I thoroughly enjoyed it!

Christmas was filled with music for me this year, since I sang in the Choir and for some songs played cello in the instrumental ensemble. I loved it! Looking forward to more music in 2017!

Internet access went down here for a couple days, but today a new modem was installed and I'm "knocking on wood" that it'll keep working well now.

Still no tatting to show, but ideas are simmering. I think for 2017 I'll try to come up with some men's tatted jewelry designs. Some of my previous designs are quite suitable for the guys, such as the "Atom" pendant and the "Celtic Triangle", but I'll see if I can come up with more.

Good idea. Your combination of tatting and wirework could well be aimed at men.

That's a really cool looking pendant Marilee - very best wishes for 2017!

Thanks, friends; happy new year to you!
The pendant took me about a week to make, working at it a little at a time.
