It has been 2 weeks since ArtBliss, and I still have that post-workshop, 'I'm going to perfect all my newly acquired techniques, create something no-one has ever dreamed of, and change the world with my jewelry!' sort of mindset going on...just overlook that last whiny, pity-party post! Although, thanks to my sweet bloggy friends for the virtual hugs and kind words :)
I was downloading some photos of new creations and found the photos I finally got around to shooting of my "Hard Candy" beads I created in Melissa Manley's fabulous class. We cut copper discs, punched holes, domed them, enameled them, fit them together with a center disc and tube riveted them together into actual beads!
Even though mine are pretty danged wonky (and yes, that gorgeous red one has a big, stinkin' chip in it) I am still pretty tickled with them! Aren't they cool? They look like miniature planets :)
