I had an extra challenge with this being the first cane I've made since my five month old daughter discovered she can grab things. Only took one close call for me to remember to put the blade out of reach of her chubby little fingers.
I'm excited to create more jewelry from this flower, and it's lead to lots more ideas and sketches of more projects. Only thing holding my up now is that my "studio" is still in the process of moving into it's new designated spot in the basement. I'm not letting myself make more until it's done, I thought that would motivate me to get it done. And now I'm hoping that the public declaration of finishing the setup will motivate me further. I'll keep you posted on how it goes.
