Tonight I just finished typing up the inventory for our show at the end of July. The venue wants a list of the inventory now but we can add more stuff once we get to the show to set up. I am sure there is a reason they need the inventory now but as of right now I have no idea why. That is one thing off our list - YEAH!!!!
Here are some of the things mom and I are working on:
|Three Necklaces in the works|
|These are flower beads from BeeTree by m.e. and |
flameworked beads by us (Raku frit I am playing with)
|Polymer Clay Dream Jar by BeeTree by m.e., Copper chain,|
copper VK by us, copper hears, and lampwork beads by us
|Polymer clay flower beads by BeeTree by m.e., pearls,|
and I am working on beads for this necklace
|Three more necklaces to complete - the two on the left are being|
redone because I was not happy with the way the back
of the pieces looked. I am sure mom is swearing at me about
redoing the necklaces but I am a little crazy that way.
|This is called "Black Widow"|
|This is called "Cotton Candy"|
|This is a new necklace with more beads by BeeTree by m.e.,|
raku beads by us and freshwater pearls
I have been working on making beads with all the new frit I received from Sandi over at Sandi Carrico Jewelry Artist. I like playing with different colors of glass and frit. I am also playing with raku frit for the first time and as you can see I had to get out one of my flameworking books to figure out reduction and oxidized flames. Still get confused on that.
Oh, question for any of you lampworkers out there. Have any of you ever used any flower petals in your beads? A friend would like me to use flower petals in making beads and I was wondering if anyone has done that before? Any insights or tips would be highly appreciated it.
I guess that is it for our Bead Table Wednesday. I know next week mom and I won't be posting anything because we will be on vacation with my niece and nephew and I don't know if I will have time to blog next week. I will keep you all posted. Have a great Wednesday night!
