Well August is over and the children are back at school again. The house seems overly large (not an easy thing as it is very small!) and very quiet without them.
Now it is time to get back into the routine of work again. Trying to spend more hours at the clay table, get my stock levels up ready for the Christmas rush and trying very hard not to play!
I have needed to develop more of a "production line" attitude to making the jewellery, which I hate doing, but I need much, much more stock if I am going to get through the next four months. I have 19 Craft Fairs between now and mid December - yes NINETEEN!!!
That is a lot of stock! So playing is definitely not on the agenda. January will be a time to have a rest and play with some new designs, but for now I need to just work, work and perhaps do a little more work!
The picture is of my Curve Necklace (more on Flickr if you want to see the matching bracelet and earrings). This is using Dan Cormier's Cutting Edge Technique. The man is a genius in my humble opinion!
Now, must get back to the clay table....
