Uh-Oh. I messed up. Big time. I haven’t been on the computer much lately (darn summer…and computer issues!). I totally forgot that today is the 2nd reveal for the BSBP. For some reason, I thought it was NEXT Saturday! I feel completely awful. I only remembered when my phone beeped 48 minutes ago, to remind me. I thought I set the reminder for 48 HOURS before the event. So I quickly snapped some photos of what I’ve completed so far. Hopefully I’ll be able to finish my pieces today and post more photos/rewrite this post.
These earrings were made using some jump rings and pocketwatch keys that Pam (my partner for this reveal) sent. I used some waxed linen cord and used half-hitch knots to wrap a soldered large link of a chain. I’m not 100% happy with them—they don’t lay right, and I may end up changing out the top jump rings. But I love the idea, and the knots were super simple!
The only other thing I’ve worked on was the pendant for a necklace.
This picture is absolutely HORRID. I used the cash register key pendant that Pam made, and took the bottom jump ring off. I added a smaller one of my own, and put 5 dangles of red glass beads from the huge strand of glass beads from India that Pam sent along.
Again, I feel horrible that I didn’t finish in time for the real reveal. But you can still have fun hopping along with all those who can remember a date! Here’s the list of all the participants in this reveal.
