They say the 1st is the toughest …

So true …  But – it’s finally done!  My glass mobile … After working through some production difficulties, and spending time learning the fine-art of beading wire (with my hand cramping up too many times to count!) … it’s hanging outside the  studio, catching some summer rays … (disregard the dead grass – the gardener and I need to chat …) Smile

This first wind chime is for my dad … but as you can see, I have lots of other family members lined up.  And now that I have the technique down, I’ll make a few generic (i.e. ‘Welcome’), and one for me too!

But not today … now it’s time to get in the pool!


About claytonhill

Artisan of beautiful and functional art, handmade in our glass studio. All items one of a kind due to the nature of our medium. A little about me: As the mother of four children, multiple four-legged 'children', wife and an ER nurse ... I've always found pleasure in pursuing creative outlets. My current 'hobby' is kiln-formed glass. As I never do anything 'half-way' ... my husband and I are really enjoying this medium. Other hobbies have included/include stained glass, quilting, knitting, wine making, candles - oh, and a brief trial of the ancient Ukranian art of etching designs on blown eggs ... don't ask. :) You can view my on-line glass store at
