Whats On Your Workbench Wednesday (WOYWW)

Firstly sorry I couldn't get to all who left me a message the last time I played in WOYWW. I'm having pain issues on the right side and I am right handed so typing is a wee bit painful let alone arting but I do get little bits done in short spurts. I'm hoping the lovey specialist I see next week will help me get some relief. Last week I had visitors and no time to join in WOYWW then either but here I am this week at last. If you are wondering what WOYWW is all about pop over to Julia's blog here and join in or read about it. This week on my desk its still all cluttered but some projects are slowly coming together including another steam punk puffy heart necklace!! At the back left is a origami folded heart and tutorial plus video to how to do that is below this post here. I forgot to open the curtains before taking photos so the card is a bit dark so I'll add it below

At the back right are some cute nautical miniature brass items I hope to use on my jewellery. Here they are closer

The necklace at top left below I will dismantle to use the rings as bezels.

Steam punk heart...needs a chain and few small watch cogs added. I'll take better shots of it when its fully completed, It will eventually be for sale in my new on line shop Annette's Art Alchemy!.

A whimsical flying bicycle I am toying with.

Off to have a look at others work benches around the World myself for WOYWW!

Yes Annette I am going to have to buy a piece of your jewellery as it is just wonderfully beautiful!! I am a grunge and steampunk kind of gal lol!! At the moment I wish I was in Darwin as it doesn't get cold like it does here in Dubbo!! As I have about 3 jumpers on lol!! Happy WOYWW and I really hope that the specialist can help with the pain that you are having on your ride side. Take care :-).

Sorry to hear you are having trouble. Hope the specialist finds a solution for you! Your steam punk heart is amazing! I love your heart card too. I plan to show my nephew (11) as he LOVED origami and is great at all types of paper folding, for some reason I get turned around when doing this. Take care!! Winnie#84

Lucy said...

Sorry that you are in pain, I hope the specialist can fix it for you. Your steampunk jewellery is gorgeous. Love the heart and the bike. Good luck with the shop, I'm sure it will be a big hit.
It's freezing up here in Brisbane too, so I think I'd like to come up to Darwin for a while as well as Janene :)
Have a great week.

Happy WOYWW Annette, I hope you get the pain sorted, I had that for 3 months last year, due to prolapsed soft tissue in my neck they think, good job I am left handed, though the report wrongly said my left side was affected, the specialist who wasn't really interested in my pain, was more interested in the left hand right hand thing, clearly disbelieving me when I pointed to where my right arm still hurts now!

Anyway I love that heart and the bicycle, will check out your shop too.
