My Hands Hurt

Remember a few weeks ago, when I mentioned I felt harried and overworked? Well, this is why.

I've been making chainmail jewelry since college, and it fills the same mental niche for me that knitting would for any sort of normal person.

I've been applying for juried craft shows with my jewelry, and at the beginning of October I got into one. The initial elation was followed immediately by a sudden terror: I had nowhere near enough pieces.

So, that's why I've been distracted and haven't been posting as much as previously. I spend all my free time wrapping wire, cutting links, and assembling. At this point, I consider making earrings to be breaktime.

After the show (which is on the 22nd, details to follow) I'll put any remaining pieces up on Etsy for your perusing (and buying!) pleasure.
