Remember this weekend when I posted my
Well, here's the fruits of my labor after playing around with some different materials this weekend.

I'm having fun making hoops, covering them with recycled sari silk and various colored ribbons and wrapping them with the darkened annealed steal wire and adding a few little seed beads and crystals - too fun!!
The Grunge Hoops will be available in my Etsy shop this week.
Also, the weekend before, when we played in the garage studio and I dipped some things in liver of sulfur?
Well, here's a few of those items now, too.
I love how copper can look on different surfaces and with different colored backgrounds - it's such a cool metal!
I'm gearing up for the Annual Nutrioso BBQ and craft show this weekend up here White Mountains of Arizona and so some of these are going to be put on display there, but several will be in my Etsy shop next week as well.
I'm limited to what items I have up here at my sis's cabin, but it's stretching my creativity to play with what I have. I even forgot my LOS, so no dark metals other than the ones I made up prior to coming back up here - oh well - I'm still having fun!
Someone asked me if my being here at the cabin fueled my creativity or did it just make it too hard to create, being in such a beautiful area and wanting to just enjoy my surroundings. The answer is a little bit of both!
What's fueling your creativity this summer?
Are you inspired by your surroundings?
Until Next Time,
Peace, Love and Creating Fun Things!
