Hodge Podge

Please bear with me during this really random post. I was planning on posting today about my roommate's new earring frame, but she can't decide where she wants to hang it. Hopefully we'll get that done tonight, and I can post those pictures tomorrow.

The first piece of random business...a peek into my sketchbook.


The Hot Dog King is the restaurant next to our Greenville site, and I couldn't resist sketching their cute mascot while my professor was rambling about something. I'll try to continue posting sketchbook findings. I like to sketch out new jewelry designs as part of my creative process.

The next order of random business...A finished creation.


I'm so glad I found that tutorial I blogged about yesterday. I've been wanting to make rosettes like this for so long, and I finally found a usable tutorial. I made these three orange rosettes and glued them to a thin silver metal headband. I glued felt on the back for extra support and comfort. I plan to make more of these especially out of patterned fabric. I really want to make a rosette necklace. Contact me with questions about ordering.

Last piece of random information for the day...A GIVEAWAY!!
