I know, I know....I had the photos taken but just didn't get the post done!
As always, I have a few projects going at once, and even though I vowed last week that I would plow through finishing all of my un-finished pieces, I backslid this week.
I mostly have been working on my piece for Andrew Thornton's July Reader's challenge...I loved the colors and mixture of elements he chose, so I dove in and purchased one the kits...it includes a ceramic leaf pendant from Melanie Brooks of Earthenwood Studio, a ceramic tube bead from Keith O'Connor, a lampwork glass bead by Bernadette Fuentes, plus a mix of Czech glass, Swarovski crystals, semi-precious stones, vintage glass, brass chain, and a tiny seed beads. To top it off, the kit included a mystery item...one of Andrew's own handmade copper coins carved with a leaf !
Watch for a post on August 1, for the reveal of what I created!
This is what has really been occupying my studio time a lot lately....embedding things in solder! Can't wait to see what these are when they are done!
