I am sitting here munching on almond filled Chocolate (with a capital C!) from a dear new friend (thank you!), enjoying the feeling of deep satisfation that comes after a day of hard work.
Silver has been very patient with me lately:
leather has taken most of my time with projects nearing completion and the near zeal that takes over in those moments.
First, the belt I am making as a part of a collaboration with my dearest Jillian:
Kelp, sea sponges, coral, sea grass and a luminous pearl are the features on this underwater belt:
the plants are all reversed and doubled on the other side - each side leaning in towards the pearl that sits at the back center of the belt.
It is going to be so amazing to see the two pieces together when the belt is finished: belt and buckle, once ideas from separate brains now joined in camaraderie
It kind of feels like Christmas morning all over again!
Secondly, today has been simply RIVETING!!! (nyuck nyuck nyuck)
Literally, I have been putting hundreds of rivets on my Lovebirds Bag.
I cannot stop.
Every piece is lined in the softest suede, buttery and pale.
I know at this point it will be done by Friday or Monday at the very latest: it is a force of nature, demanding its own completion.
I hope your day was full of rewarding hard work and support all around you.
