Busy busy

 The Bracelet here is finished.  And, the necklace has a charm of a clam shell dangling.  Still thinking about fringe.

Lots of things!

Busy girl.  Daughter inlaw and I have been beading a ton.  Thought I'd better catch anyone who cares up with my life.  We've spent many hours in my 'pottery studio' using my tiny kiln to make glass cabochons.  Tho some of these picture feature actual 'stones'

Somethings more recent

Had one bell left from the wind chime I made last year.  Decided to make a fairy necklace of it tho I don't usually wear necklaces. A couple of fairy charms and leaves and tadah!  A necklace I just might wear more than once.

More Melted goodness!

Spent 2 days trying to make a bezel that would work.  Watched dozens of Youtube and finally Peyote bezel video came up at 2am (thanks to the cat who sings most of the night) I finally found something I knew how to do. happy

Towels on my 4 shaft loom

A friend, Mary Hovde, came over several times to help me warp my little 4 shaft Rassmussen loom.  After much fighting with heddles (had to make 500) and rewarp twice because things got out of order.. I learned a ton.
 I managed to get 3 nice sized towels.  The purple one went to a new home.  The others are being enjoyed by us.

glass melting

Been doing alot of interesting stuff with my small kiln.   Top picture is Liz's drip stained glass pieces.  There was supposed to be a hole in both of them so they will have to be remelted but the color swirls are so cool.  To bad the picture doesn't show it.
 Middle picture is what people have been calling a 'space odyssey'.  Its a combination of stained glass with clear and red beads melted over the top.  Beads are working pretty well.
  Bottom was me using up cheap colored beads that turned clear or white on me except for the red and blue.. obviously.
  This has been a steep learning curve but I'm really enjoying it   Liz has tons of stained glass chunks that she inherited.
 Next I think we will move on to the big kiln and try large glass slumping.
