Today mom and I are working out in the garage/studio. I finished making up some more "Butterfly Kisses" beads to make a necklace and I was playing with some green glass and frit and I love what those beads look like. I can't wait to get the beads out of the kiln tomorrow.
This is what mom has been working on all day, so far. I actually sawed out the perimeter (took about an hour) and mom has been working on the interior since about 7am this morning and it is almost 2:30 now.
This was taken about two hours ago.
This is mom about 15 minutes ago.
I think she is bound and determined to finish this piece today.
After I finished making beads I found some pendants that had to be sawed out, so I started to saw out the perimeters. If the pendant is easy I will actually saw out the interior, if it is easy.
What I finished today. I think I am done, my hands are tingling and it is starting to get harder to hold the saw. But let me tell you, sitting in a proper chair and at the proper height makes a world of difference when you are sawing - it is more enjoyable now. I was using my lampworking chair to saw, which is little to high. Last week mom bought me a folding chair and it is perfect!!!!
