Everything is Frizzled

I have had an entire week of frizzlement. The weather is frizzled (rainy and gloomy). I'm frizzled (migraines and just blehs). My camera is frizzled. This perfect storm of blehs and frizzles has led to the blog silence...

Actually, my camera is deep-fried frizzled. It's something I'm finding is happening with all of my US electronics. US is 120v and it's 220v here in HK. I have been using a converter for my camera battery and it was working for a while and now it's not anymore. My camera recharged just fine when I was in the US, but I've returned and now it's not cooperating. I've missed photographing two of my friends weddings. (But the digital age has allowed me to still have access to their pictures.) I've been trying to photograph my latest batch of jewelry and I haven't even been able to get one or two photos.

Finally, I have an alternate camera. I just need to get used to it. I don't like it as much as my other camera, but it's good enough.


So...just to keep things interesting here is some eye-candy. I need to take better pictures before I upload to my shop. If you're interested in any of the pieces, just email me. I'll upload to my shop later this week after I have some better photos.

Barrel Weave Bracelet with Swarovski Crystal - $49

  4. Maire - thanks for the suggestion on scanning. I completely forgot about that! I'll have to give it a try and experiment. It seems like it would work better with flat items, but I'll see if I can do anything with chunkier things.

    Nancy, Lori, and guest - thanks so much for the comment on my heart charm! I plan to make more of these soon. I just straightened up the "studio" (my flat) and now feel like I have "permission" to indulge. And thanks for the comments on the barrel weave. I love doing this weave...it's a perfect charm chain.
