well, here's what i've been a-workin' on today.
a lentil bead with a beautiful sunstone from oregonsunstone.com (it has a starburst pattern on the other side). future posts will most likely document the torture of stringing and re-stringing that stinker till i get it right.
super-lightweight disks for a friend...
and boy, do i like those long earrings.
and my proudest moment? see that little headpin down there with the balled end? it's the first one i ever made with my brulee torch (or any torch, for that matter). i needed something with a heavier gauge to hang the lentil on, and ta da! there it is.
