More Glass Beads

I really don't understand whats going on with me at the moment, I seem to be obsessing over beads but this afternoon I am back on track Art clay Art clay all the way.

In the meantime this is what I have been making.

These are my first attempt at core beads some are a little big but I like them.

These are disk beads that look like ruffles. This one makes me smile,such a lot of colour not me at all.

Well I'm off to play with some silver, enjoy the beads.

Glass fusing day

Hi Everyone

Today I had a day to myself so I spent the whole day in my studio fusing glass. I find this so relaxing and love all the colours of the glass. This was the first two shelf's to go in this morning.

These will be made into earrings and cufflinks for Christmas stock for the shop. This is some of the glass in the kiln just reaching temperature

I think I went a little mad and made loads, so I will use the ones at the top in my Art clay workshops. I like the glass with silver it really makes the colors pop.

I also made my favourite Tack fuse. I really enjoy the edgy look to the finished glass.

I hope you enjoy looking at my work, as much as I enjoyed making them.

OMG has it been this long

OMG I really can't believe it has been so long since I blogged ( note to self must make regular up date's)

Well since my last visit I have managed to pass my Level 111 Masters registry and here a couple of pictures off my work.

These are two of my favourite pieces my mineture scissors and my nesting ring both of which rewarded me with high marks. I hope you like them as much as I do.
