So I'm a little rusty

Funny how that old cliche "use it or lose it" is actually true.

Part of my grand plan, apart from reopening the store and all that entails, is regaining my skill with the wire. I used to be good. It was effortless sometimes how neat, symmetrical and repeatable my work was. Now, it's like I'm all thumbs.

While polishing a bracelet in prep for getting it listed, I noticed one of the stones I used needed to be replaced. It's a charm-style bracelet and I was just using a headpin with a normal loop and wrap style attachment. It took some concentration to get a new one made. It came out fine, but it wasn't automatic you know?

So you can see what's in my future, can't you?

Practice!
Practice!
Practice!
