This week I was planning to complete wirework pendants for my 2nd shelf (in the new shop that I'm always harping on about). I have concentrated on established designs as they are quicker to make than fiddling with new designs. But I felt that you wouldn't want to see work you can see over at my Polly Polkadot shop.
... and then last night changed everything. I got the children in bed and asleep by 7pm, we had all eaten, I had washed up and the OH had even hoovered the floor. So there was nothing for it, but a trip to the studio at the bottom of the garden.
|This the only pendant design I would class as finished from last night, the rest are 'designs in progress'!|
But I had an excellent session, with lots of ideas to work on. The following are snapshots taken this morning.
I spent ages on the first pendant, but I just couldn't get it to lie how I wanted it, so I think that might go on the noticeboard until I come up with a new way to use it.

This pendant doesn't have enough curve to the tail, but it is a starting point.
OK, so now I must move onto the 3rd shelf, something a bit different just to hedge my bets on sales!
