It is Friday night and I have been in my studio all week except for two shopping trips (my least favorite thing) and this is what I have to show for it.
First of all I decided the earrings I made were boring so I covered the fired pieces with paste type and used the syringe for some very loose squiggles. I think what I came up with is younger and they are a great mother's day gift for my daughter from her daughter. Fine silver and pearls. Then,
after watching Hadar Jacobson, so generously, on her video do a hinged pendant I was determined to do something similar in type so I have these...
Eventually, there will be a colored and gold toned door in the front of the pendant and I am thrilled with how they came out. I do not have my finishing down yet but now that I see how
every little mark shows I will work on that.
I am amazed at the generosity of the metal clay community. They have made so much information so very easy to find and that makes it possible to learn and practice a lot on your own.
Tomorrow King Tut exhibit and then, on Sunday, some weekend fun with my girls, tea at the Botanical Gardens..daughters and grandchild. A nice, actually perfect, Mother's Day!
