This is still mom's sawing area - she did finish that mask (though needs to be filed and sanded). You can see the next pendant she plans on working on.
Here is the mask before filing and sanding. I am not sure what we are going to enamel it but I can't wait to see the finished piece!!!!
Here is a pile of cleaned beads - we have beads for two necklaces, two bracelets, and several earrings in there. Some of those beads are experiment beads for a customer. We are trying to match the colors of a necklace she bought but I am out of the glass I made the beads from and where I buy my glass does not have it - so experimenting with color. I think we have some beads that might go now just need to make them up into earrings.
Here is my sawing area - all easy pieces to saw out. I have some circles, kokopelli and a leaf bowl. Like I said, easy pieces!!!!
The following arrived in the mail:
The beads are polymer clay pillow beads from Tropical Blonde.
I made the following from two sets of her beads back in September and they both sold at our Art on the Wabash show within the first two hours.
I hoarded her beads for over a year before I made up lampwork beads that went perfectly with her little beauties.
Well, I wanted to buy more polymer clay pillow beads but I saw her shop was empty. Mom said try emailing Kate and see if she would be willing to sell us some more. Well, Kate responded and said sure and that is that. I seriously can't wait to create something with them.
I am off to work some more in the garage before I head home and do nothing. Trying to make sure mom doesn't do anything stupid to hurt herself. Who needs kids - I have my mother :)
Have a great Wednesday!
