talking about being sick- not only that I added little size 11 seed beads to the brooch, one by one, I also put them on their side so that the hole will not be seen add that to multiple baking and finishing touches and what do you get? no, don't tell me... I assume it is something better for me not to know :-)
I need to find a name for this line - can't go with the "Sisyphean line" too far - any ideas?

I am playing with a new technique in the last couple of weeks combining tiny clay stripes and beads. this is a Sisyphean work but there is something very relaxing in this process.
I will post more pictures of the new items once I get them photographed- stay tuned..

I like the copyrighting for this shop - "because most things are funnier when you flatten them"

So the order was for a mezuzah that is devided to sections in colors of orange/green/red/blue.
as a warm-up I prepared this first mezuzah, devided into sections but not in the agreed colors.
then I made this one with cane leftovers from the stripe cane tutorial . still, not in the right colors.
O.k. it's time to work... I made two options for the customer to choose from.
and this was the one that she picked - I just got a call telling me that it arrived safely and that she is very happy with it... sigh...
I used the new Studio Satin varnish as a finishing coat- I love the effect that is has on a sanded surface - it is like going WITH and feeling WITHOUT...
