Happiness is ......


a bowl of beads


a pile of pendants


and a handful of bronze.

Sorry I just couldn't keep keep the alliteration. But Peter has added that we could go further with a pleasing pile of polished pendants. I think that's just a little too silly even for me.

It's Friday the 13th and I really, really did not want to open the kiln this morning on such a bad luck day. The  glaze tests earlier this week were abysmal. Absolutely nothing was right in there and so when it came to glazing I wasn't real excited. I just sort of slapped some on and hoped for the best. All in all I'm pretty pleased with most of it. And I am quite pleased with myself for getting so much done this week. It's been a while since I felt even remotely productive. 

Happy Weekend!

I'm off to sort bead sets, photograph, and get things ready to list on Monday.

These are beautiful! I hope the kiln tests turn out just as great. (I'm especially loving the pendants!)

i have a friend whose birthday is the 13th... she will have birthdays that fall on friday, and so has told me it is all just a myth... if people are born on the 13th - it cannot be a bad day!

Those glazes came out great and so did the designs. I am so glad it happened right and it cheered you up. Nothing like a delicious kiln load to photgraph and put on to make for happiness. I haven't been on th web much for summer and computer reasons so I was delighted to find you post first thing.

Friday the 13th looks like a lucky day for you! Love the bowl of beads. I see some sweet little birds in there and some connectors with 2 holes.....will be watching for your listings...

What beautiful things in today's post! Yes, you sure took the infamously unlucky day and made it a lucky one! I especially love the new bronze pieces!

Living in the 'old world' - which you would think would be full of superstition - it always amazes me that Americans have such a 'thing' about the 13th... no such problem here. And obviously, no such problem for you either. Looks like lots of lovelies came out of your kiln. Congratulations on such a productive and successful week.
Wishing you a wonderful weekend.
