Here's what I did with some of that roman glass I purchased earlier this year. It's finally getting to be the time of year to wear something like this where I live. I'm not so sure about the marble I photographed it against, though. Sigh. I wish I were a little better at staging.
Anyway, I like the way the fine silver wave tag turned out. I'll probably be fiddling around with that design a little more.
We're recovering a bit from our vacation. The SO's internal clock is still set to EST, which means he's been getting up at the crack of dawn - not my favorite time of day, alas. The SO has finally reached that age where he's favorite words during a trip are: "Are we there yet?" and "Is it time to go home yet?" and "When are we going back to home?". (Of course, now that we are back home, he's started asking "When are we going back?") Still, he grudgingly admitted to liking the polar bears at the Central Park Zoo and the Children's Zoo was a big hit, although he made H. feed all of the animals, instead. (I'm completely sympathetic to this last, as I, too, have always wanted a stunt-double to handle the more difficult and/or mundane tasks in my day-to-day life. If only H. enjoyed vacuuming...)
I am an intellectual property lawyer by training and have a background in English Renaissance literature. I love science fiction. I primarily watch Sesame Street these days and find myself humming "Pop Goes the Weasel" at odd moments (guess why). I can happily eat ice cream in the middle of winter when the wind chill is 20 below 0. I have been making beads and designing jewelry since 2007.
