Have I introduced you to my new best friend? We've had our ups and downs since we first met, but now the friendship is running along just beautifully!!! I can't imagine now how I ever got along without her!!
As you can see, she's working right now......
This past week, I had surgery (doing very well, thank you :o), and have been limited in what I can do. Sitting on the couch glazing beads has likely saved my sanity. Here are a couple of the recent firings.
Those nice shiny black beads & pendants were supposed to be "moody blue"... (guess we know what mood they're in, huh?) Thank goodness I hadn't run a black firing yet, so this saved me the trouble. Will just have to do without "moody blues". Gotta love those happy accidents!!
Lovin' the green apple beads!
And here's the stash to date, minus a few here and there that went into jewelry. Hopefully, these will be joined by some lovely yellows and oranges when I open the kiln in the morning.
I rarely ever make pieces for myself, but the first red firing spoke to me. And, I just can't seem to ever keep a red necklace. It always finds a new home; with a relative, a customer, a friend...... Think I'll try to hang onto this one.
