So many projects. So little time.
Working in batches helps me to be more creative by having more components, bead options when I sit down to make jewelry: copper components, ceramic beads & pendants, pewter pendants & charms, enameled copper beads & pendants, etc. So, at any given time, there are projects in process all over the house!
Here are a few of the pieces on the bench now.
Finished, glazed ceramic pendants, beads. This glaze should have come out a rich ruby red. its much darker than expected, but a great color for Fall.
Pewter pendants, components.
Enameled copper disc, awaiting matching enameled beads
Bisque fired clay beads patiently waiting for me to find time to glaze them.
Sometimes it feels completely chaotic, but I never get bored. And there is always something to spark my creativity.
How do you work? One piece of jewelry at a time?
Or in creative chaos?
