I can't believe that January is almost over and I haven't posted here even once. I really need to get back into the swing of blogging again. I'm not sure anyone really cares but it matters to me.

We have had some really cold weather so firing up the torch hasn't been a good option for most of January. To quiet my creative urge I have turned once again to twisting wire and hammering metal. There seems to be a great deal of satisfaction in hammering and twisting.

The earrings shown here seem to best represent January for me. Seems we have been going in circles. The loss of a precious loved one at the beginning of the month and now another loss at the end of the month, the visits with loving friends, the cycle of freezing cold and thawing warmth. Now the glorious rain that will bring a beautiful spring. I'm looking forward to spring.
