I got those Fall Inspired Beads finished!! :0)

I did finally get those beautiful Fall Inspired Beads finished.  The Mokume Gane technique has to be one of my favorite techniques to play around with… it just seems you can never have too many or too few of colors when you are working with it….. FUN!!


Here are the finished beads:

A wonderful and very talented jewelry artist purchased these, I just can NOT wait to see what magic she works and what the final piece will look like.  Maybe I can talk her into giving me a shout out when she is finished so we all can see what she has created….


I have also settled into the Christmas mode, even though I am still stuck in the summer mode and waiting for my brain to say it’s Fall already! 

See, isn’t he cute!

with these I hope to send a whole new batch out for Beads Of Courage  if you have never donated beads to them before, I strongly suggest that you do….. what a wonderful way to brighten up a child’s day then with a little bead….  that sparks a smile, and that can lift a spirit and change the coarse of a day……   just something to think about….

    your clay is amazing! i tried some last night and nearly set my kiln on fire.. can’t believe I’ve been cooking glass at 950oC with no problems and I pop in some polymer and create an almighty mess.

    • tinat says:

      Oh, NO!!! you have to read the package of clay to see what temps it’s to be cooked at…. it’s nothing like earth clay…. So sorry that you lost your creations to eht Kiln. :0( What a stinky mess that had to be. Most clay bakes at 275 degrees in your oven… or toaster oven. Oh, I bet that just did not smell the greatest! (snickering at the through of that smell and mess! – sorry!) LOL!! :0)

      Thanks for the compliments!! Very VERY kind of you!

      I do hope that you give it a try again, and if you have any questions, just hollar… at any of us PC artist… Most are very giving and ready to help! I have not met one yet that isn’t willing to help others learn more about PC!!

      again, thank you! and I do hope you give it another try!
