Starting a new adventure is SO exciting! The bead making is well underway. My trip a couple weeks ago resulted in over 100 beads & pendants, ready to be sent off for their first firing. The greenware was oh-so-carefully rolled in bubble wrap, lovingly packed in paper, boxed and shipped off to my WONDERFUL friend and inspiration, Mary Ann Carroll. With only 3 shipping casualties, she received those beads this week.
These guys were just too thin, and/or poorly packed to make the trip.
Just look at this treasure trove with which I'll have to work !!!!
Natural, red and black stoneware clay was used.
I just can't WAIT to get my hands on these again and start glazing!!
It will be such a rush to receive the final glazed product!! Stay tuned as my adventure into ceramic bead making continues!!
How are your new New Year adventures going?
