Nest Feathers and Twine - Formally Artist's Block Studio

The things that make a house a home and the stuff that holds is all together.

Years ago I started this blog with a mindset and goals that I have found have changed direction over time. I am excited to say that this blog has a new name.....Nest Feathers and Twine. I hope you come by and visit often. Feel free to get comfortable and kick off your shoes and join me on this journey of metamorphosis.

the necklace

this necklace originally came about because i was going to submit
it for a challenge to somerset for using nature in your art. well, i
decided at the last minute to do it, then had not time to sit and actually work on, except for in my mind. the last day, when it was almost complete so i could mail it, we had a snow storm, it was our youngests birthday, the circuit breaker kept needing to be reset in my studio, which we later found out was due to some new bulbs my husband had been told would be ok to use....thanks home depot man! our hot water heater was working on its 3rd thermo cupler in 4 years, that we found out was due to a manufacturers defect. so during all of the chaos i am trying to get this all together to send off, and while my husband is off trying to get the part for the water heater in freshly fallen snow slick roads the circuit breaker goes again and i have an 'aha' moment when i realize the connection, but can not do anything until he gets home because i can not reach the bulbs, the hubby phones home to say the trucks thermostat is going wonky.....what a day.

well, to make a long story short, i feel there are no accidents, no mistakes and
knew right away there was a reason that the universe was not allowing
me to send this off. there is a call for art for the belle armoire
jewelry book due in april! i might have to make a twin of this though,
i don't know if i can stand to send it away now for 9 - 12 months!
