I made these beads just before I left for Portland and they were waiting for me when I got back and opened the kiln. I had sort of forgotten about them until I cleaned up my table. These are a little fiddly to make. But as we all know, I like fiddly things. They are made from very very thin slabs of porcelain and molded over a measuring spoon. That's right, nothing is sacred in our kitchen. It is all fair game in my studio.
I can see these as focals in a necklace or bracelet. I just can't see the design very clearly because I do so little jewelry design. I'd love to see them made as pendants with a collection of charms off the bottom and a heavily wrapped wire loop at the top. The vision is just there at the edge of my fuzzy brain. And someday I just might get around to doing just that. But for now I'm concentrating on finishing some of those big barnacle pots. 6 done now, 1 to go, and only 34 to go before studio tour.
Oh in case you are shocked at a morning post from me. My computer cracked a mental last evening and so did I. But the computer fairies have been in to do a little counceling and magick and all is right with the world.
The whip cracks and I am back to the studio. Jeesh, my boss is so hard core. Isn't a Friday morning off OK once in a while?
