Making and Learning

I made some earrings earlier in the week perfecting the mobius link and using up some of my darker coloured Herkimer quartz gem stones.  I tend to use making things as a distraction to other things going on in my life.  It gives me 'time out' and something else to focus on.

I 'pulled' the post on my doll collection that I posted a few days ago as I didn't think it really fitted with the rest of my blog.  I am not even sure if I should keep this post up as it is not one of my finer photographs but then again life isn't always perfect as it has been demonstrated to me this week.

The last few days have been very unsettling for many reasons that I can't go in to here.  It is all salvageable problems though and hopefully over the next few weeks life will settle back down again.

Aah, the peaks and troughs of life. 

Here's hoping that the week ahead is just a gentle plateau.




  1. Your earrings are beautiful Simone!
    Sorry life has been rubbish this week, hopefully next week will be much better.

  2. The earrings look so pretty. Love the colours of the links against the stones. I'm glad I took another look at your dolls yesterday, they are so beautiful.

    I know all about those peaks and troughs of life, for me I am so glad July is over.

  3. Sending good thoughts your way, hugs from across the sea.
    Have to tell you, Simone, your jewelry has such an individual style, a signature style. I think you're very talented.

  4. Guess I should have at least glanced at this post before writing my last comment, though I like to read peoples' blogs in order.

    Sorry you had a rough week and I hope that things have improved. There are always ups and downs in life, you're right. I'd rather have ups and downs than just be middle of the road all the time, I think, though perhaps more ups than downs.

    Wishing you gentleness, joy and beauty.

  5. The earings are lovely, Simone - sorry that life has brought you ups and downs this week but glad to read that you feel most of the problems can eventually be sorted. Take carexx

  6. You're right life is full of ups and downs and these earrings are definitely an up though. Good to channel your creativity into something you enjoy.
