It amazes me to think that I haven't worked on creating any new glass pendants since last year! My focus has been almost entirely on my metal clay work since my certification. I have made some new wire wrapped pieces, but it wasn't until my show in Milford that I realized how low I had gotten in my dichroic glass inventory. So I took this beautiful holiday weekend and focused on glass. The kiln went on early this evening and I can't wait for tomorrow to see how they look.
The next two weekends my focus has to be on creating for Celebrate West Hartford, but I hope to add at least 4 of these onto my website if I can get some winning photos. I find that dichroic glass pendants and necklaces are the hardest for me to photograph. I hope to master this by the end of the year!
In the meantime, I wanted to share with you the work of one of my twitter friends. Aside from blogging on my musings, I love blogging about new soap artisans I have tried. Today I will share with you: http://www.mybirch.etsy.com/. I received 3 goatsmilk soaps from her last week and couldn't be happier. My favorite of the three is her island coconut soap, which I have pictured below. As a special bonus, she is having a sale! You can buy 3 Bars for $9.50 plus shipping. So if you are in need of a treat for yourself, definitely visit her shop.
