I've had a lot of things going on these past few weeks. Besides preparing for Thanksgiving, and adding more items to my Etsy shop, I've decided to have my first ever open house next weekend. I've been working diligently to build up inventory for this event. So for now, not everything that's made is in my Etsy shop. But it's helping me organize how things flow from start to finish. I now have everything grouped into its phase of production. Design phase, curing phase, etc. So I might do a photography session for about 30 - 45 minutes. Or I'll do an hour of making ear wires - or a buffing session. I kind of just go into a zone as I listen to my audiobooks.
If you're a follower or someone new. I thank you for stopping by. I enjoy reading your comments and feeling connected to this community. I wish you and your families a wonderful Thanksgiving. Cheers!

Beginning this Sunday, November 15th, the BAO blog will begin doing bi-monthly posts (15th and 31st) featuring work that was done using a particular color scheme. We hope you come visit and share your thoughts!
This past week, I found myself in two treasuries. The first was made by Riskodesign. It was titled "visions in red". I liked the way the red popped.
The next treasury was made by Donauluft. It was called Lucky Day. It sure was!

Then I varied them in size and domed them (ear wires to come)
then I tube riveted some
then I thinned them and played with the shape and liked what was evolving.
similar, yet smaller
I figured if it looked like a leaf, then I'd really make it look more like a leaf.
I played with the thickness
and the color.
And then 2-tone was born
