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.  :)
