Stacking Rings

I threw these together this morning…..

StackingRingsI even cheated and colored in the fake patina on the heart with a black Sharpie. The two set stones I used pre-made bezels and the brass ball is casting grain.

Running out of ideas for character beads. Tried a horse. Came out of the kiln looking more like an alien than a horse.

More Zipper Pull/Charms

I have to figure out a way to take pictures of these things. Hanging them isn’t working. They move around and the pictures turn out blurry. And after dropping them twice behind my desk I gave up on getting any good pictures.

I got an order for some mushroom charms….


I fumed the ivory stems to make them look more like mushrooms. Kind of gives it a in the dirt look.


Other more colorful mushrooms. These are fun to make.

Clip On Charms

I made a bunch of random beads for cell phone/zipper pulls last night:


I quickly put together these clip on charms. I think the clip gives them more versatility. And they are quick to make. Going to work on more beads like this tonight.
