All it took was Central Air …

Oh Yeah!  The BRAT strikes again.  DH – and licensed friend – are plumbing the studio for AC.  In honor of the soon-to-be COOL temps, I finally have a kiln running (the baby kiln for small jewelry pieces).  And I used my new work table.  Sure, I’m still sitting here in the studio – making certain nothing catches fire … But it’s a start!


In between, I’m playing with chainmaille: Scherzo with mood beads and tiny (3mm) peacock niobium wire Barrel bracelets.  I have an idea for some earrings too, but will need to bust out my tumbler first … (more to come)

I’m also prepping for my next kumi necklace:


Add to it all – three more days of Michigan sunshine/pool-time, and I am one happy girl!  Next up … more glass projects!


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
