Been A While

Since I last posted and I don’t remember where I left off. I’ve been making beads and starting on a few metal pieces. The metal pieces have a ways to go.

BasicsSet StonesBasicsSet

I made these two basic black and white with a little gray sets a while ago.

PaulineWarg-FlowerVessel-WithFlowersGot the idea to add glass flowers to my eye dropper lapel pin. I thought of this late in the evening so I attempted using epoxy. While the wires are securely fastened to the dropper, it would have looked better to use resin and fill the dropper, then add the wire flowers.

My Finished Vessel Necklace

I got the chain part done yesterday and started working on a topper for the lid of my vessel today. It didn’t turn out like I wanted and I thought of another idea AFTER making this so I’ll have to remember to use the ideas next time.

PaulineWargVesselClass-Finished-SmallAdded some rocks for added interest.

Pauline Warg’s Vessel Class

I took Pauline Warg’s vessel class last weekend. Here’s the two pieces I made.


PaulineWargVesselClass-1I still need to add a chain for the necklace part. Will probably make something up to match the vessel. The vessel is sterling silver with a etched copper piece riveted on the front. It has been formed using a hydraulic press.



This is a little flower bud holder made out of a glass syringe. The end has been closed up and the black things are o-rings. I was planning on putting a design on the front but I got lazy and just finished up the piece as is.

More Bead Sets

More round bead sets…..


These didn’t work out like I wanted them too. I used coral for the base bead covered with dark Kalera frit. Turned more black than I like. These have been etched.

YesseniaRound4-FinishedDark turquoise base bead with white enamel and copper leaf burnt in. These have been etched.

I’m back to making beads even though the weather is still hot. Especially in the garage. I need A/C in there.

Two More Paracord Keychains

Made these with black paracord. Even though it’s the same size as the camo colored one it’s softer so I got a thinner and tighter knot effect.

Few New Bead Sets

It’s been WAY too hot to make beads. I’ve been trying though….


Etched per the customer’s request. Round bead pairs. StrikingColor-RakuRoundsAnother organic looking set out of Striking Color glass. I still need to practice getting more color out of this glass. Used some raku frit on top too.
