Cleaning and procrastinating …

DH is helping me get back to glass … He built a new work station with MEGA frit storage.  Awww – check it out!  (Not quite done … but close enough for photos!).  The other end has larger cubbies to store all of my enamels!  SWEET!!!  Thanks, Honey!



So, while I haven’t fired up the kilns just yet, I am cleaning the studio (in between some other projects).  I’ve also organized my chainmail supplies, which means I stumbled on a forgotten project (Elemental Chain by CWilson) with 3mm (umm, TINY)  Crystaletts:


I eased into the bracelet, by working a smaller version pendant:


I also pulled out supplies to work on a beaded bracelet, crystals and pearls … pretty.  It gives my hands a break from forcing stainless steel into shape (… I’m sporting chain maille blisters).  Ouch!

The best news (beyond a cleaner studio … I KNOW, right??) … Friday is a pool/sun day!  Woohoo!!!


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
