Tonight was metal clay jewelry class. Awesome fun. My moonsnail silicone mold homework rocked! What do you think? I used bronze clay for it. We also filed, drilled holes, cleaned our air dried copper pieces. All will be kiln fired
I didn’t make these but I made them happen! Mags were a Craigslist score delivered to my work. I told my admin last week I wanted an easel. I came to work this week .. Her husband got me this
A lovely time was had by my dog, my sweety and myself ~ walking the beach in the moments that were not pouring sideways rain, today. I made mini meatloaves in the big cupcake pan ~ to warm us up

Tonight I took a 3 hour copper clay class at the local art gallery. And I have homework of making silicone molds! It’s a 3 parter class. Tonight we learned basics of rolling, textures, cutting & copper clay properties. I
I took a 3 hour life drawing class tonight, at the local art gallery. It was awkward yet interesting. I used charcoal & pencil, attempting to draw the nude female model. You’ll have to take my word for it as

Happy Johnny Cash Sunday crafters! With JC on the hi fi, I went nuts in the craftroom today. I made an Asian inspired pair of red earrings! Then I made matching ceramic earrings & a bracelet. If that was enough…
I embraced jumprings again & made a gemstone, silver, glass & ceramic. Anyone know what the big blue triangle gemstone is?
wow! A frustrating beading night! It looks so easy & I can usually rock the peyote stitch. Okay maybe not so much a fail as cheat. Lol. I cheated with glue on the side. Anyone know what kind of gemstone
Heavy washers are fun & cheap to work with. Thai paper collages on fronts. Shiny blank glue & map of where I used to live on the backs. Black ribbon as cord. Easy peasy. Tomorrow? I’m upping my game with
It was a 14 hour work slash commute then start the woodstove & walk the dog ~kind of rainy west coast day ~so my thing for today will be simple. We put together a wine kit & a beer kit!
