Here's a couple of new pendants designs I made recently. I want to make more of this bird's head pendant and leave off the hole and use a bale
This one I call hang five; I might add some polish to the toe nails, what do you think, red?
These will need bales added. What do you use to glue your bales on with? I've used two part epoxy but that's so messy. By making multiples of pendants I'm improving my technique each time, these are nice and thin. Sometimes I curl up the ends of pointed pendants ever so slightly so when they are worn they don't poke into the person wearing them.
I took a quick photo before Gary packed them up for tomorrow morning at the flea market, otherwise I wouldn't have a photo of them. Folks are asking for them there now. The dark red leaf ones are really nice, but too shiny to take a good photo. And the satin clear glaze came out just right on the patterned pendants. There's a few hearts in there for valentines day coming up. I have I made some of which I'll be adding bales to the backs.
Check out this etsy treasury called Linda Linda Linda, just what I needed for a pick me up this week. Thank you Linda K Design for including my mystical feather tile.
I have a ton of driftwood I collected in California and want to use it up, so I plan to make more buckets or other pieces to utilize the driftwood. For fun I thought I'd post different pieces of driftwood handles in this water bucket and ask which handle you think looks best. Disregard the first photo since that's a side view of the next one. There are five choices of handles following. This is the water bucket I almost couldn't get the form out of , but the seams held, sometimes my luck amazes me.
I have a couple of favorites, which handle do you like? Stay tuned for more pieces from the latest firing, some good, some not so good, and one crazy screw up. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.
