Chainmail and glass …

four-winds-agate-earringsMeans I’m one happy girl.  I broke down on Monday and purchased an instant download tutorial for a weave that I’ve liked but couldn’t quite figure out (felt like I needed 3 more sets of hands to complete).  And now, I am a Four Winds mailing fool!  Here are some earrings (with stainless steel, copper and agate).

And a bracelet I’m working on (stainless steel and anodized aluminum).  Plus, a quick pic of a shaggy loops bracelet in peacock (glass fringe beads) colors:

Speaking of anodized aluminum … DH recently said he wants to get some equipment to do just that – SWEET!  I guess there is a man-application for coloring metals … Who knew?  Winking smile

I’ve also spent a few productive hours in the studio.  I have spoon rests going through the final slumping phases (photo of 2 completed).  AND … I have my coffin loaded with stage one of a few more spoon rests, bowls (including my sister’s special request cobalt stringer bowl) and a night light.  [Fingers crossed for happy kiln Gods!]

I’m not talking about the snow.  Nope.  But, on the plus side, the crazy weather seems to have put a kibosh to the (Sandhill) Crane WARS going on in the field by our house.  Yep, must be mating season.  Those brown flamingos sure are loud!  (Photo credit R.Reznick)
