You're so nice and you're so smart

And yet again I've unintentionally taken a break from blogging. School has been kicking my ass, and a few situations at home have turned very sour and have left me a bit upset and in an overall glum mood. I figure I'll be able to put that all aside once I leave for Scotland... in just twenty three days! It's totally overwhelming but just the thought of starting the new year - symbolically a fresh start, I suppose - in a different city and country seems like what I need.

On a more positive note, I made the brooch I'm wearing! It's two pieces of copper riveted together with a paint chip I've doodled on laid inside, then with resin poured over. I made a few similar pieces as well - two pendants and another brooch. For a while I was questioning whether I wanted to continue with jewelry as my concentration, but I've become more comfortable with it. I recently tried lost wax casting for the first time, and I'm very pleased with the result. It's a sterling silver ring - I'll post photos at some point, I promise.

Where does this time keep going?

  1. You are as cute as ever! I love the maroon and cream together - those colours are two of my favourite as welllllll. 

  2. I have the same boots and they are a lifesaver. On the other hand, I adore the comeback outfit!

  3. Scotland! How fantastic. Jealous, yet again. You travel quite a bit! Is this studying abroad, as well? 

    I really dig this outfit. You look so cool. And the brooch is gorgeous! I really want to take a class to make my own jewelry. :)
