I've recently discovered that with hair this long and a program where you work with fire and drills and violently spinny things all day, braids are all that really keeps my hair out of the way. So I'm still stuck in my braid funk. Upside: when I do get a chance to let it down, boy is it curly. Down side: I'm sick of braids. This is my attempt at a rope braid for the first time. Its super easy, but doesn't look as nice as I was hoping. I saw an H&M display were the models had crazy full and pretty rope braids. To be fair it was fake hair so they could probably do whatever they wanted with it. But I was hoping to achieve some body and texture with this and it just looks... skinny.
Necklaces: hand made
Paper crane necklace with dangly pearl: done in brass (my fav practice material) the original I actually made for my mom for remembrance day. but I liked it so much I made one for me too :)
Double band ring with rectangle design: this was actually a mock up for one of our projects at school. This one, done in brass went pretty well. So I felt confident to do it in sterling silver. Ha! For my first real soldering project I guess it turned out ok, but boy were there pits and fire stain and uneven lines... just not cool. I went ahead and finished this one in brass sometime later. Once I had a little more soldering and finishing practice. Its a size 9 though which is waaay too big for me to wear even on my thumb. Wonder if I can give it as a gift or sell it to a guy.
