Bookish Jewelry

Ta-da! Here is the soldered pendant I learned how to make.

I was working with a crummy soldering iron (blame all mistakes on the tools, right?) but it was still fun and not as difficult as I thought it would be. My husband is afraid I have found yet another hobby.

We did go to Borders on Friday and we even lucked out and got to hear poetry from several high school students who were doing a reading. There were poems about death, angst, forever love and the like, but I give the kids tons of credit for just having the nerve to get up and read. That’s hard work.

I also made it to the library and picked up the latest from Alexander McCall Smith, Blue Shoes and Happiness. I can’t wait to see what Precious Ramotswe is up to in this latest installment.
