What a wonderful day~~After worship and a visit to a dear friend, I came home and glued myself to my workbench. I finished the resin cabochon pendant! With only a few mistakes along the way~~pretty amazing. The wonderful part of the day was being fully engaged in creating this piece. The hours disappeared. When I came up for air it was 9:30, which is 30 minutes past my bedtime! Seriously, on work mornings I wake up at 4:30...so an early bedtime is a must. But today is President's Day and the Imaging Facility I work at is closed...whee! AND my sweet darling husband is in Bakersfield with my little brother. I'm luxuriating in sheer selfishness.
Side view of the piece. The cabochon is cold connected to the copper plate with the stamped tabs. Below you can see the rivets I used to attach the tab sheet to the copper plate. I'm so happy and proud of this! I'm so grateful to God for this gift of creative joy.
Revelations Chapter 21: Verses 3-4 NLT
"I heard a loud shout from the throne, saying, "Look, the home of God is now among his people! He will live with them, and they will be his people. God himself will be with them. He will remove all of their sorrows, and there will be no more death or sorrow or crying or pain. For the old world and its evils are gone forever."
A new week my friends. Now I get to catch up on laundry & stuff to get ready for work Tuesday. But I hope I always hold the joy of play and creation deep in my heart. Love y'all!
