I finally tried knotting a necklace. I love the drape… I think I’m ready to use some pearls. 🙂
Just as I suspected! Fine silver rings are much easier to make than bronze rings. It just costs double (or more) which means I have to plan out my design better so that I love every piece I make. This was my trial piece. I did not spend tons of time on it since I wasn’t sure how it would fire but happily it worked great. Now I’m off to plan the next ring… woohoo!
Okay, after much trial and error I have decided that bronze rings are hard to make. The clay shrinks so much during the building process that it is hard to let rings dry and attach properly before they go into the kiln. At least for me… right now… I’m of course still thinking about how to make it work. 🙂 I did manage to make these cute stackers out of bronze.
I know… super bright pink is terrifying to many, but I just had to use this color. So fun! 🙂 If you are brave… you can find ’em in my Etsy store.
So things over here were a bit crazy… but now they have finally settled down. Hopefully this means that I can get back to making stuff. 😀 I whipped up this bronze flower bracelet that is so cute. I love the flower… I will be making more flower bracelets. I loved them in glass and now I love them in metal! And of course I love both my metal and glass together because you know I made five of the beads in the bracelet.
