I've always thought December was a month of relaxation and fun and savoring the last weeks before the new year swings by.
But I thought wrong, obviously. As we get closer to the end of December, the things I have to do are just piling up a lot faster than I can finish them. And there are useless pursuits I keep succumbing to like Bejewelled and lazing in bed. Very bad joce, very bad. :(
I was whirling with fulfilling all the Christmas orders before I flew to Bangkok, and then it was JY's birthday and then christmas gatherings and more orders and I have an unfinished book to return to the public library by.. (searches for loan receipt and realises the due date is today)
The white rose on a silver band, is quite like what my initial impression of December should be -
serene and calming.
I know this isn't a food miniature, but once in a while I do love to sculpt non-food items (not too often though). Plus it's always good practice for commissions like miniature cakes with fondant flowers on top. ♥
I really like the ring, and would definitely sculpt more next time. Maybe a different flower, a different colour. Some have expressed interest in earrings with the flowers, which I think would look as awesome.
By the way, it's an adjustable silver ring, so it fits all ring sizes.
I hope your December has been less hectic as mine, and you get time to reflect and ponder about what you've done in 2011 and what you wish to accomplish in 2012.
As for me, I'm off to get in a game (or five) of Bejewelled before bedtime. :)
