Seems like a long time since I've blogged so this is going to be a lenghtly one - just warning you. I had quite a bit of time away from the torch due to a short trip the KY for The Gathering - WOW! What an experience that was. Then my daughter came for a weeks stay, which was totally wonderful and then it was catch up time with all the usual responsibilities I had set aside for the other fun stuff - you know how it goes. I finally got back to the torch about 5 days ago and must confess I had a couple rough days just getting back in the zone. I had so many ideas I wanted to try after being so hyped up by all the inspiration at The Gathering so I picked one area to start working with and that was Silvered Glass. It's tricky and I've tried my hand a few times before but this time I got some results I am really happy with. Not consistent yet but I'll take what I can accomplish with this beautiful glass any way it comes. Want to see some pictures?
I'm going to post pictures backwards this time because I can't wait to get to the cool DH Silvered Glass:
Hey good news! Staxx Brand Jewelry now has a pendent that can be used with my disc beads!!!! Of course I bought one for myself. The pendent and chain are sold separately and are very reasonable!!! I picked up two extra chains and pendants to have in my studio for display and purchase - that's how reasonable they were.
And last but not least is a photo of a key chain my friend Sue G. made using some of my beads. Nice work Sue!!!
I warned you it would be a long post so thanks so much for taking the time to read my blog. I love blogging about my beads and it helps me learn from my mistakes as well as my successes but most of all I love hearing what you all have to say and suggest. Summer is coming to an end and while that makes me sad (weather wise) it means more days at the torch are right around the corner!!!! See ya soon!
