After I posted about cutting up all the tin pieces, I worked on getting them made into jewelry. Here’s one pair of earrings I got done. I love the soft beach colors, pale blue, sandy tan, and bits of gray. And the clay drops at the bottom; I bought them from a woman who made them and her fingerprints are captured forevermore in each piece.
Today, I’ve got the kiln heating up, my work table is a disaster area, I need to get a few pieces listed, plus the usual various and sundry tasks of life to get ready for the work week ahead.
Here’s whats going on with a few of my friends.
