It's the day after what was supposed to be my second WTW post... Ha! Keeping myself honest, here is what my work table looked like yesterday. I'll give you a bit of a tour!

If you recall a post from a few weeks ago, my new jewelry line is called Flights Of Fancy. Here I'm trying to get over a hump on what to do with the small necklace crescent in the front. I knew I wanted to use the leaves. I've bent the end around to the back and one of those birds will be added, along with a few other details. The challenge for me is to keep it simple. I'm so used to making highly embellished collage-type art!
To move around the table, the black clamps are THE BEST. If you have a Harbor Freight nearby, they are $1.99 each. If not you can find them at any hardware store. I used them to secure the leaves to the crescent while the super duper adhesive cured. THE BEST!
I now have a decent selection of filigree bases for my cagework and possibly this line. I could be content just shuffling filigree around on the table - it's so beautiful!
Ha! The large crescent was an embossing experiment with my Sizzix. I didn't get the result I wanted, so now it's just "textured". :)
The filigree on the paper towel in front started out as raw brass. I've colored the pieces with German Silver Guilder's Paste. I think this is my favorite color in the whole wide world.... until the next one comes along. I love working with and wearing both silver and gold, and this color is a nice blend of both. Guilder's Paste is a cool product that I've barely worked with; have you used it? I'd love to see your beauties -- leave a link in comments and I'll come visit you!
Thanks for stopping in today!
