Mothers Day Weekend

Been busy at work and not getting much in the way of jewellery completed
the first thing I worked on during last week was putting bails on my finished zentangle engraved/etched pieces

I rough up the backs and use the UHU Creativ two part epoxy which I am down to almost nothing left in the tubes and cant find anywhere any more - other than on site in England -   I ended up buying a new tube of E6000 to give it another try - I just find my bails pop off using the E6000 but I've read where people swear by it - so I'll give it another try on some test pieces 
Hopefully it starts to warm up again - the temps fell to zero again (32 )  and during the day only mid thirty's  and it snowed -  May 12 and we had a small snow storm 

I put some heat on but never made it up to the studio on sunday so I shut it all down and locked up 

On Saturday I had both my granddaughters and we spent a few hours playing in the studio - I had put the heat on and we stayed up there  an they painted their picture frames for their Mom  and did some other crafty things 

and I cleaned glue from the backs of etch copper pieces (with goo gone)  I'm making for toggles 
(I'll take a pic later and post ) 

We made a wonderful mess and I got my hands dirty- and it felt good to be playing for a bit 
Hopefully tomorrow - Monday I can go up and put my zentangle pendants onto cards and do some more work  on my new sheets and get them done by the weekend to cut up

  1. Love the Zentagle designs! Beautiful work! Curious about E6000 too as I've had bails pop off too. Keep us posted!
