Little & Large Looming

Well, I'm trying to get pieces ready for San Diego's little & LARGE extravaganza this summer, coinciding with the Calder Jewelry exhibit at the museum.  I'll be represented at the Colluseum Gallery on Kettner, showing my "dolls" (a.k.a. figurative sculptures) and jewelry.  Trying to get the jewelry piece for the show brochure finished (the doll is done) and some other pieces for the gallery.  And, yeah, still got my day job.  Too busy.
I was away for 4 days, going to my daughter's college graduation, and when I came home I forgot where I had put a whole tray of pieces.  PANIC!
But I did find them.  Today, of course, was one of those days when nothing I touch went smoothly.  Made jump rings to join a bracelet.  The copper were too big and too lightweight.  So, I did them smaller and in a heavier gauge metal.  Too small and too heavy.  Ok, heavy gauge, larger...holes in the bracelet pieces too small.  So, tomorrow, when the sun shines, I'll head out to the drill.  Maybe it won't be one of those days!
