Back to Valentine’s Day

Back to Valentine’s Day

Day 14, #the100dayproject, #fixand finish. I had plenty to do on Valentine’s Day! I finished this necklace for my daughter.

All it needed was a chain and findings. The stone heart is rose quartz. I bought it at Cherry Tree Beads in Swannanoa, NC. See how the red paper heart hides the logo on the JTV gift box?

I fixed a hammered copper heart I made this Sept. at the JTV Workshop in Knoxville. I just swapped the silver chain they gave us for a copper one. When I torched the heart, it formed a hot pink streak, which is hard to see in this photo.

(I like the torch firing!)

I’d bought Vivi a candle from Natural Life that said, “You are So Loved,”

but I didn’t have the right size gift bag. Then I remembered a white bag a neighbor’s little girl had used to deliver us some Christmas cookies. It had red tissue in it, and I had saved it! I recycled it with red paper hearts I had punched and a heart from a box of conversation candies. Perfect fit!

I didn’t forget my grandson, who just wants money.

I sent my hubs stacked boxes of goodies from Wine Country Gift Baskets. I can reuse the colorful boxes and the ribbon that held them together!

Vivi didn’t want the carnations she had received at school from friends. She left them in my car. I put them to good use. I got this mug on clearance and was afraid to use it to drink from because it had a flaw. I put it to good use, too!

It was a Happy Valentine’s Day!

I got some itty bitty Czech glass button cabochons in the mail, today.I tried them with some settings,and I am pretty pleased.

I finished a couple of necklaces. One is a diffuser/locket.Because it is a fairly heavy piece, I hung it from a heavy chain. I finished it with one of my favorite antique looking toggle clasps.The other has a piece of Asian fabric captured under glass in a bamboo frame. I wove a black and gold Kumihimo cord to match and finished it with a magnetic clasp.
