Chainmail and glass …
Means 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?
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)
