Sometimes, despite things like the heat, or my innate laziness, the day does exactly as I would have wanted it too. I managed not only to get housework done in the relative cool of the morning, but did several other small tasks that I have been avoiding as well. After all that I still had the motivation to get all the new necklaces photographed and listed. As a reward for my efforts two of the four new pieces are off this morning to a wonderful new home.
evergreen and charcoal gray are still in the shop.
Long before that sale though, I got to work on another piece using the same teardrop shape. I didn't want to do the same design so I opted for a bit of a Celtic weave with this one. I was also completely out of tear shaped stones so I fished out a flat silver piece in the perfect shape to finish it. I actually have one more of each finding I used here, but if I use them it will be either with entirely different thread or a completely different pattern.
In addition to the one of a kind pieces being sold, I also got another order for my cat ear headband. That thing sells so much better than I ever imagined. So today I'll be making up as many of those as I can handle. I need to get some inventory on it so I can stop rushing to remake it every time it sells. I also pulled out a few more filigree pieces yesterday so I might get to some more one off pieces. I may hate the extreme heat, but it is affording me the opportunity to get a lot of things made.
