I actually took a vacation recently, over the holidays, and went to several museums: the ICA, including the fiber exhibit, and the Peabody-Essex, and a craft gallery or two. Whenever I look at museums or high-end craft shows I end up coming away enthused to try out some new things craft-wise.

Back in the day, I used to do a lot of wire wrapped glass gem pendants. I haven't used them much recently, but I've been using brass stampings all the time, at first mainly on key pendants and now branching out to pieces that are just stamping and sculpted wire. This new thing is a glass gem surrounding by ivy vines and crystals and lots and lots of wire. I'm pleased that I was able to make everything attach firmly. (As usual, there's no adhesive or heat applied here anywhere, just wire cold connections.)
