Another jewelry challenge piece . . .

I finished this piece for the summer jewelry challenge a couple of weeks ago, but I never got around to posting it because I thought I would be making more. Well, this is the only one I made and because I am wanting to get on with the other projects I am posting this today. I had a dickens of a time finding my book yesterday because I put it in a spot I don't normally put books. I must have searched high and low for at least an hour last night looking for it. I finally gave up and put my cranky self to bed. Then low and behold, this morning I found it sitting on that shelf I don't normally put books on!! What a relief! I am looking forward to continuing on the jewelry challenge journey. Yesterday I had the opportunity to do some more metal etching and I know I will find good uses for it in the projects to come.
I have been working on cleaning up the little art room in the back. It has become a bit unorganized and I have found myself wanting to create outside of it, so I know it is time to get it back into shape and make it the space I love to be in. I am not a neat freak by any means, but I don't like not having any open space to set things down on. It always feels good to get things back in order.
I realized I haven't left you with any inspirational words lately, so today I am leaving you with these: "Life is love, beauty and wisdom, as well as energy and imagination. You will be able to use It's power in exact proportion as you embody Its essence." - Ernest Holmes, The Art of Life

Lovely piece. I've never before seen a face bead like that. She's so pretty. Good luck with organizing your space. I need to do that too but the motivation isn't there yet. Must mean it isn't so bad??
