Story Beads

Friday, April 29, 2011

I've always been fascinated by the stories told through art and art objects. I call these new beads story beads. They aren't quite done yet...they need one last firing to adhere the decal to the glazed surface of the bead. I'm *hoping* all goes as planned. It was tricky to get those tiny decals on a small curved surface. I've got some fun bee sets on their way as well!
Happy Weekend everyone!

My mom's brand new etsy shop has just opened: PIGEONRIVERSOAPS! If you haven't switched to handmade soaps yet- you must try them out. They are better for you and the environment. My mom specializes in unique scent combinations and has an environmentally friendly focus. She is a newbie, so give her some love! My current fav is Sweet Bliss.




Happy Earth Day!

My week in pictures!

We are installing a new exhibit at the museum- The Compassion Project. Over 10,000 art tiles depicting compassion by local students. Can you say lots of hammering?

Our dining room (we've been remodeling since last fall...) got its hardwood floors refinished! Woot! Finnley and Puppet are enjoying the new floor.

New charms came out of the kiln (most have sold). I made a few necklaces. More charms will be on their way in a couple weeks!


AND...it snowed....the good news is, it already is almost melted!
Driving out of town this weekend. While I'm gone, enjoy 15% off in my Etsy shop with the code word...

I squealed with delight when I opened the mailbox yesterday. My package from missficklemedia arrived! I've been having fun putting together some charm necklaces that I think will be a hit at art shows this summer!




I was inspired to create some new teeny charms. These just finished up drying and are headed for the kiln in a couple days.
