So until then, here are the photos from that day:
These beads were for a necklace and these beads:
were for matching earrings. I think the set on the left were the best match. I am not too happy with the center set as they are too uneven in design for my liking but the last set turned out very nice but the color does not match well. I'll keep that last set for another personal project.
Now it seems I'm getting lots of requests for pink and black these days so these next photos are for the same customer who wanted a necklace and matching earrings. I'll remake all these as soon as my kiln is fixed. Thank goodness my customer was not in a hurry - thanks Betty! For the necklace she just wanted one single focal bead hanging from a chain. Not sure which one she will like but since I have to make new ones anyway, I'm curious to know what you all like if you care to comment.
Well the kiln was only used 3 times before I managed to fry it somehow. Not sure what happened but it will be fixed soon!!! So it's on to my jewelry making phase which I need to do anyway so I can't complain too much. Pam and Mike make wonderful kilns and are great to work with - unlike my experience with Paragon customer service. I loved that kiln too but this new one is super sweet!!!!
As always thanks for reading my blog and watching me learn and grow with my bead making. I love it more than any other hobby/art I have ever done before and I see myself doing this for a very long time. I love everyone's comments and I appreciate all the support and encouragement from all my friends, customers, and family!!!!
