A little playing time here at kimmykats



I have been playing with some different ideas here at kimmykats.  Sometimes it seems that your creativity has flown the coop.....so I read, I play with Pinterest, look at what everyone is up to. While reading I came across this post by Rebekah Payne of Tree Wing Studio on the Art Jewelry Elements blog http://artjewelryelements.blogspot.com/2013/09/how-to-two-more-pressed-flower-bead.html
 I had read one of her previous posts on making molds.  I gathered all my supplies and started to play.  I had a great time gathering stuff to mold!  I started this necklace....not sure how I will finish it...still in the playing mode.....
I like my color combinations....just didn't like all the chain.  I am in the thinking mode......
 
I also played with some of my buttons....a tute purchased from The Blue Bottle Tree
 
Still a work in progress......
 
 
Next I started on ......
focal by Kimberly Rogers of Numinosity Beads   this is one of her nail beads

I pulled out the steel wire for this one.  I thought the rustic look would go right along with the rusty nail.  I have my beadwork done....now thinking of leather to finish.

Now for something I did completely finish.....
birds and silverware....

 





Hand molded and stamped ...no 2 will ever be the same.....
These went to the store ...testers to see how they sell.

A woman I love.....Petra Carpreau of  Scorched Earth
opening her package is just like Christmas...
I have lots more of her beads to play with!



 
 


Meanwhile lots of spoons and bracelets have flown to new homes.....and I am still playing!

Have a great weekend!
