I'm having an annoying day!

Today I made this necklace. It was supposed to go on Etsy, but I did such a horrible job on the wire-wrapping that it's going to become a permanent part of my private collection. It's a shame, because I really like the design and how it looks, so I think it would sell nicely, but the quality is not such that I want it going out in the world with my name on it.

So that was one annoying thing. But the main thing is that there are more delays on getting my stupid domain name back. I was having a perfectly fine day until that happened, and it's been all crankiness and little annoyances since then.

On the bright side of things, my finding and bead order arrived last night! The filigree centerpiece of this necklace came from the order, as did the Sterling wire I mangled and the little headpins that the dangles are hanging from. I got some other cool things, too. And they're even mostly all put away already.

I'm going to go play with my corgis now, to make up for the irritation of the day!


  1. That's very nice! You can cut the wire-wrapped bits off and try again, you know.

  2. I could, but the trouble I had was such that I'm pretty sure I'd have the same problems all over. I need to buy some cheap copper to practice with before I go back to using that silver.

    And in all fairness, I really like the necklace, so when I was still in the planning stages, I had decided that I would list it on Etsy and if the listing expired without it selling, I would keep it ;) I don't need more green jewelry, but it is a pretty Neo-Victorian piece.
