New Beads for New Etsy Banner

Dipped Drop Beads that will be new additions to my ETSY Shop soon

Dipped Drop Beads that will be new additions to my ETSY Shop soon


These are the some of my new dipped drop beads that I have created from clay using a new glazing technique. I love the way they turned out mostly because I can choose from a number of enamel colors for the torched enamel beads that they will be paired with for earrings.

I will have some of these at my spring shows shown as Milestone Markers on the left column of this blog as well as the Omaha “Art Spot” that I am involved with – the Smiling Turtle.

Here is a link to my ETSY SHOPwhere I will sell these beads as components for your own DIY jewelry creations! I hope to photograph and post them for sale within the next week.

Finished items soon! You can see a pair of finished earrings on my Facebook page post from February 22, 2015 if you click here: MY FACEBOOK PAGE

Clay Dish Fired with Glass at Bottom

Bird on Dish with Melted Glass at Bottom

Bird on Dish with Melted Glass at Bottom

This dish has a little bird attached to the edge of it and I melted some turquoise glass at the bottom hoping that it would resemble a bird bath. I really like the way the glass crackles although it still has a smooth surface. I suppose others would think it was a mistake, but I embrace the happy little accidents that occur with ceramics.
Next week, Monday production will include more abstract little birds and more dishes. Maybe some mixture of colored glass fired at the bottom. This technique will work out great for yard art with the crackled glass glistening in the sunshine.

I really cannot wait until spring!
