Please read all instructions carefully …

instructionsThis means you, doofus!  Or, more specifically, ME!  I am currently the [not so] proud owner of about 5 pounds of seed potato pearls in every possible size from 3.5mm-5mm.  All because I figured those instructions I’d printed out were for the more challenged of my creative  counterparts … NOPE!  At one point, I had DH ‘helping’ with man tools, drill bits and metal files.  We had a vise and forceps out.  We destroyed a pearl and mutilated a silver finding.   I ordered additional supplies from multiple companies.  The whole time I had the instructions – with the magical answer sitting right in front of me for weeks … DOH!  Lesson learned – the hard way … and, ya know – I love my new bracelet.  (So much so, I think I’ll make about 10 of them …)


new-glassesMaybe things will be better (or I’ll be more inclined to read) now that I have these.  Personally, I think they look better on Lola (my model), but I see better when I wear them, so … (Getting old ain’t for wimps!)


Now, back to taxes …


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
