Cuz It’s THAT Time of Year!

Yep.  Time for a bit of ‘distraction shopping’.  I watched a few videos about copper enameling and PMC (precious metal clays) with glass … So, I’m  stocking up on what I need, waiting for some items to arrive and scouring through my books.  Hope to give this a try in the near future.  Meanwhile, it …

Still tinkering and cleaning …

I’m playing with a few color combinations for component pieces to use in future pendants.  Some great colors, some … not so much.  We are using stringers that we’re pulling from our vitrigraph kiln.  I love that!   And, I’m putting together a couple of tiles … just waiting on a few more jars of frit …

Another vit pull … and stuff

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 …

I’m still here …

It’s been forever, I know.  Busy mixed with a little funk, I guess.  Not so much going on in the kilns, but I did get all of my beading supplies moved from my ‘office’ to the studio.  This meant a lot of deep cleaning, reorganizing and stair climbing(!), but I like it … I also …
