Progress ...

Everything I did yesterday was an epic fail. So frustrating. I am glad to report that today has been far more productive. Generally, I am all too happy to share my frustrations- no sense hiding them under a bushel, but since I have already unloaded on dog and husband I will spare you the burden of that particular tale.Suffice to say that today my equilibrium is restored, my marriage saved and the dog is happy to be allowed back inside ... It may only be one component for one neckpiece, but I am delighted that it has taken shape - with no real disasters along the way (unlike yesterday ). I can now march forth, faith in my abilities restored and climb new creative mountains - small hills preffered!

In the beginning ...

- some brass and watch parts ..

Hmmm - adding some depth ...

Voila!





Contrary to how it appears in the pics, this "clockwork heart" is a reasonable size - about 4cms x 4cms. I am loving this 3D look and can't wait to put it together with some other components, but for now I think I deserve a big, sloppy Margharita and Indian take-away!
