I've just had a wonderful afternoon in the studio, making lovely large pendant beads.
I've been very involved in a few larger projects lately (more on this later), and I'm really enjoying making larger detailed beads again.
I've made a couple of "Flow" beads and a couple of "Riverstones" beads and a
Couple of red Raku Inclusion Hearts... I'm really quite excited to see what
comes out of the kiln tomorrow morning - I have made a green flow heart which I am really quite excited about, and the Riverstones beads are in Ink Blue which I haven't done before. One has a core of Periwinkle Blue which should be interesting. I'm fascinated to see what difference this makes to the Ink Blue colour...
Here is a round "Flow" bead and "Riverstones" bead which I prepared earlier :). They're on the website...
I will try to remember to take photos of the new beads for you when they come out.
It's experimenting like this that leads me to make discoveries which totally enthrall me!
Give me a few days and I will be ready to make sets of smaller beads again, but for now I'm as happy as a sandboy!
Now, I'm off to the kitchen to cook some gurnard (fish) for dinner - still cooking, just at a rather lower temperature and with different ingredients!
