I see that I have not yet posted about losing my daughter, Ruthie, in June.  Ok.  So she passed away on the 8th of June.  She left behind 3 children, Monica 16 1/2, Olivia 14 1/2 and Javie 10.  She was seperated from her husband for almost 2 yrs but when she died her husband got another job so he could be home every nite with the kids.  He moved into their little trailer for the time being.
Ruthie had Lupus but she had other problems as well that contributed to her death.  We all love and miss her very much.
The kids started school yesterday.  My husband is taking 2 of them to and from school and their Auntie Gloria is taking Olivia.  They are trying the best they can to just get on with day to day living with Monica being in charge while they are home until their Dad gets home from work.
I'd prefer them all living with us but we have to respect their Dad's wishes to keep them all together now.

Since my daughter's death in June, I just haven't felt like doing much of anything but I really need to keep my mind and hands busy so I don't just break down and lose it.  So I've been making jewelry for my Etsy shop--
I can make things but not have to concentrate so hard as I do when I knit.  I've started a cowl 4 times and have ripped it all out over and over again.  So I gave up on that pattern. sigh. :(
I've just started making some bracelets using non tarnish gold and silver wire.  Very simple but beautiful at the same time.

Those are just a couple of the ones I've made this week. 
I've also tried doing a few words in wire:

I'd love to get any kind of feedback from you all.  Let me know what you think, good or bad.  I can take constructive criticism
