Oatmeal & Bangles
One of my favorite lines in a song is from John Prine. The line in the song is describing his bad morning and it goes like this....
"A bowl of oatmeal tried to stare me down...and won."
I love that line! And the other morning, that is exactly how my morning started off. It wasn't pretty.
So I decided to blow off all my more pertinent responsibilities and hit the waxes. I was working with some really cool new wax that actually softens with the heat of your hand...making it very pliable.
The final product were these new bangle bracelets. I may play around with the oxidization and the finish of them, but I would say the final product is pretty cool. I am going to be adding 18k gold bangles to mix in with them for that "oh-so" great look of silver & gold.
I don't always win. Some mornings are better than others. But I would say by the end of this particular day, the final score was Mary Ann - 1, Oatmeal - 0. :)
