Wound and Bound

some more creations this week :)

Thursday, July 21, 2011


I am enjoying my new found hobby of wire wrapping :) I've been watching tutorials and doing a lot of practice to try and get a bit better at it. This is a turquoise piece of agate that I have wrapped with silver wire.

Why is it so hard to find consistency and stability in another? I believe that when you meet someone for the first time, they are on their best behaviour because they are trying to impress. But after knowing them for a while, their true self starts to show its colours and it is never what you thought it was. Why are people like that? (small disappointment of the day).

All Wound Up

My weekend was spent at the cottage; it was devine. I am well rested and more tan, both of these outcomes are always welcome.

When I got back to civilization, I became restless and decided to start and hopefully finish my wire wrapping project. I am hapy to show you all the end result! I am actually quite pleased and will be happy to wear this piece. I made sure that the back was quite tight so the stone can't escape. It was a bit too loose last attempt.



Did you do any projects this weekend?

If I told you what went on this week/weekend I don't think you would believe me. I hardly even believe the luck that my family is having lately. I don't think I have been more scuffed and bruised or required more bandages form playing a sport. Doctors don't do anything for concussions do they?

Anyway, I went shopping today just to get out. I feel like I haven't done some good ol' retail therapy for a long while, but got my fix today. I got a couple pieces that will help me make 4 new outfits for work/play. Here are my purchases of the day:



looove this dress. It is a bit short, so I'm going to wear it with some black leggings that I picked up at H&M the last time I was there. The print is really interesting; it changes as you go across the dress, but it is all one continuous fabric.




I fell for the details on this shirt. the arms and rope around it are great.


some great dress-pant shorts




This skirt had some great detail on it as well. I always like getting clothing that has some sort of visual interest so that it is a special piece on it's own.
