Because I didn't have enough crap to do right now!

Actually, it was because of my purple dress with the pomegranate sleeves. I need to try it on to see if it still fits, but in order to do that, I have to finish the eyelets in the front - I'd removed the lacing rings the dress originally had in favor of smaller (and more numerous) eyelets, but I never finished sewing them in!  I took the dress, and my sewing kit, to work yesterday so I could work on it there in my spare time, but I forgot the steel jump rings I use to reinforce the lacing holes.  D'oh!

Last night, I hauled out my jewelry kit (which is less of a "kit" and more of a "random assemblage of boxes full of stuff, none of which are remotely organized") to look for the small bag of rings that I use for eyelet holes...and two hours later I'd organized the boxes a little bit and made a necklace and two pairs of earrings.
Like you do.

And no, it's not terribly Period for our purposes, but hey - I'm working with what I have.  When I have money to make awsome and totally historically-accurate jewelry, I will.

I swear, jewelry making is the only thing besides Pinterest that sucks me in without my knowledge or permission, and makes me lost for hours on end.

More stuff soon!  And I mean it this time.  I seriously have like eight posts lined up, as soon as I get all the pictures taken and edited and stuff.  :D

P.S. - by the way, the eyelet rings I was looking for?  Were in one of *three* boxes of embroidery thread in my sewing room, each of which was in a completely different part of the room.   Fail.
