What's On Tour Workbench Wednesday(WOYWW)-Jewellery!

WOYWW is here again. It's the time of the week were art farty folk all over the World share what is on their workbench. If you want to join in or read about it go to Julia Dunnit's blog here. I had wanted to post this four hours ago during my dinner break but as it goes with being a nurse...I didn't get a dinner break LOL. It's now 11pm and here I am at last. 

There are some paper crafting items still on my desk from yesterday but its mostly all about making hand made jewellery this week on my desk. I didn't get as much jewellery making done as I wanted though as I had to go to work early on several occasions and then got too busy on my days off running around all over town for various things.

Now a bit closer and you can see on the left side of my desk I have my Ice Resin out and behind those to bottles is the mixed media card I made last week and my pastel stamping card I made yesterday. There is more pastel stamping samples at the left and some Mica sheets. In the middle are resined bezels and hand etched metal strips ready to make into cuffs. To the right of them are etched house shaped metal pieces to be made into necklaces. At this stage I just try various combinations of Ice Resin filled bezels on the cuffs and necklaces until I am happy. Then I'll shape the cuffs, drill, rivet, glue and cold connect the components

Here are the pastel stamped items you can see. How I made them is below this post with a little video as well if you want to have a look. This is the card behind the Ice Resin

This is the pastel stamped item at the left of the Ice Resin

and the one in front of that lying down

A closer look at the left center of my desk. All the wings at the top finally came in the mail yesterday. I only had a few left and for whatever reason I use allot of these when I make jewellery.

On the right side of my desk I have my etched eyeball and etched puffed heart ready to play with as well. I'm thinking of adding the Tim H clock key to the top of the heart.

Hopefully next week I shall have actually finished some jewellery items to show you. Thanks for dropping by.

And you work too??? Oh my I am so in awe of what you have on your desk and the amazing work you do? I have never seen jewelery like you are working on, the cuffs look like they will be really beautiful, and the cards, well, as a newbie card maker, I am awe! They are so different, what a creative spirit you have! I have become your newest follower, I would love it if you would come and become one of mine, although, remember, I am a real newbie at this card making thing, no comparison! Hugs, Cathryn #146

You are busy as a bee, Annette! I can't wait to see your finished pieces, but what I've seen so far, is stunning already! I enlarged your photos to get a better look. Love those cuffs and your cards are fantastic too!
I haven't been blogging as much lately or leaving comments as there is just not enough hours in a day! But it's always fun to come here and see what you have been doing.

Wishing you a wonderful, art-filled weekend my dear!

aha Annette had to laugh at your comment which you made today.. see I have this theory that WOYWW is not just one day - it is a whole week from one Wed. to the next.. and so on:D.

... as am always behind never get to all folk on time - have never ever done the whole list or tried to be honest am flat out doing thirty or forty let alone another hundred plus on top.

I waffle too much you see!
One thing about your desk it is full of arty things I have never heard of that ice stuff for example if had time would Google it another time things too full on here thanks for popping over!!

God bless, Shaz in oz.x #85

Greetings from Alaska,
Your cuffs are looking very enticing...I am a true jewelry lover, 'especially bracelets. I'm hoping you have some time this week to create...not only just so we can see them, but so you can have some fun. Now that I know you are a nurse, you need it even more. I've had a fair amount of medical issues and have stayed in some of our best hospitals (make that all three of them) and I believe that nurses are angels on earth! I have so much respect for the people who do all most all of the work and still manage to have compassion. It's a wondrous thing! Thank you.
I did try to email you last week for a tip or two about your beautiful Finnebair inspired cards...perhaps I copied it down incorrectly? At any rate, see you again soon.
