Blogtober Day 13 - Fiddling About

I like to make jewellery and I am trying to add some new strings to my skill bow so I can make a few new bits and pieces for my Etsy shop, In Dark Woods. So it is that I am trying to work with wire at the moment. What I've discovered this afternoon is that I really need some round-nosed pliers if I am going to be able to make nice, neat spirals. I have had some fun in the meantime, though, 'free-forming' with the wire, binding it around and around some pieces of sea-glass to just see how they turn out. I quite like them and I think the irregular wire work suits the ragged pieces of glass. What do you think?

And a perfect accompaniment to this sort of fiddling is The Sundays on You Tube. What do you listen to while you work?

The Sundays, what a blast from the past! i wonder what happened to the singer, she had a marvellous voice. I like the wire on seaglass, lots of potential for beauty there. I usually just listen the birds as I live on a quiet street, but it's been cold this week so I've been listening to Joan as Police Woman x

Don't you love The Sundays! Takes me straight back to the early 90s and starting uni. Thanks for your comments on the seaglass :) Joan as Police Woman...I've heard of her, but not listened. I'm off to You Tube x

This Sea Glass has a very soft light that seems to come out of it. And the wire adds to the allover look of frail beauty.
