Mandala Jewelry and a Link

Hello everyone, Jeanne here.  Jules has some ideas for posts that aren’t written yet, and I told him I had a couple already scheduled, including this one about my art work.  So he’ll post again before too long.
Here’s a project I’ve been working on for over a year… learning to make soldered glass jewelry pendants using my drawings. I first had to learn to cut glass and solder, neither of which is my favorite thing to do. I’d rather just draw.

Here are some that are finished. There is a drawing on each side, so they are each reversible.  I’ve had fun wearing these myself and have sold a few.

Next step will be perfecting cutting circles and other shapes, and getting those jump rings on correctly the first time.  Probably will get back to it over the summer when I only work one job instead of two.

Today on Ask Old Jules: Old Jules, how can I make a girl like me more?

Thanks for being here, I appreciate your reading our blog and the comments.  Tomorrow’s post will feature some thoughts about dependency relationships.
Jeanne
