THIS WEEK...

Well another week has flown by sooooo fast!!
It's been a week of mostly doing orders, but I did manage to get a few stock pieces finished too :^)
I have a heap waiting to be engraved and some (hopefully) gorgeous art glass and dichro ones coming up ~ they will still need two more firings yet.

A couple of simple engraved pendant and earring sets. I really like these ~ the pink is a very pretty colour and the bluish set is actually a gorgeous shaded lime/peacock/blue glass. The colour doesn't show up in a photo very well which is a real shame.



Two more of my dimensional slide pendants. The blue in the first one is a really vivid cobalt blue and the purple in the second one is a very definite salmon pink when viewed from the side.


These next two pairs of earrings are for an order ~ these match existing pendants.


This little trio is yet to wired up. I'm going to do these with antiqued brass wire I think.
Then they will be off to their respective homes in the U.S.


The Bead Mavens are having another of their fantastic beading challenges and this is the cabochon I am donating as part of their prize pool.
If you have a chance nick over to their site and have a wander around. You will see some gorgeous work from some amazingly talented people on display!


And lastly, this took a fair chunk of my time this week. Another custom ordered birthday card.
These are pretty intense to do, but probably because I don't do that many I really enjoy it when I do!! It's actually quite a challenge but also fun trying to come up with little bits and pieces to personalise these :^)

cheers ~ Lyn.x.

I am in awe of your work, so different from any other glass work I have seen or that I can do.
