Art work done.

All the art work is done for my commission bowls and the large one is in the kiln slumping this morning.
When I go home tonight the other two will go in for the first fusing.
Heres a sneaky peak without any colour.
Keith took the commission bowls to the shop for collection and the customer was over the moon with them but sadly in the rush to get them done for today, I completely forgot to take photos.
I can't even ask for her to bring them back because the are off to the USA tomorrow ;(

Yesterday was a Studio day, for me.

I had a day on my torch and made a few beads, I then turned my hand to making a ring, that is a bit special for me. 
Before my Mum passed away last year she gave me a little silver pinky ring that she used to wear all the time. I had an awful little moonstone on it but never the less she loved it. 
It was miles to big for me, so I finally decided after all this time I would make a new ring top so I could wear it on my index finger.
This is my first ever lamp worked cabochons which is now set in a simple bezel and attached to my Mums ring, I am actually very pleased with it and today I am wearing it with pride.

Also here are some of the beads I have been making. This is all Flame offs fault!!!!!!
I have turned into a lamp working machine lol.

This is some of the reaction glass I have been using.

This glass is made of reaction glass on different transparent and silver foil.
I really like these bead

My Jewellery in the local art Gallery

Here's a sneaky peak at my jewellery display in the Ox market local gallery and when I mean local its just outside our back door lol.
If you are in the Chichester area then please go check it out, as there are 140 artist displaying some very cool stuff.
This is a very bright and bold display from me but I really did enjoying making those lamp work beads.
I am secretly hoping the disc necklace doesn't sell.
I want to keep that one.

More glassy stuff

I have made a draped tea light holder and am quiet pleased with the way it turned out, it looks lovely when the tea light is lit in the evening. 

I have got a commission for one of these already.

I also made two more bowls one is a small test piece using reaction glass, its similar to the reactions with lamp worked ivory and turquoise. Then another large bowl for the shop.

Hearts hearts hearts

This is this months four a month challenge.

I have been playing with glass and learning how to cast pendants, which I have really enjoyed. 
love the colours of glass and the pink one is my favourite.
