Flame Workin'

Finally got the flame started this weekend...trying to make more "sets" and not just single orphan beads. Unfortunately the picture doesn't show the yumminess of the colors.

Where I is.


And I can go home. Yeah, I'm home sick. I miss my hubby, my cats, my kazoo people, etc.
OK enough whinin'! I have drawings of my next creations...


...are getting me down. I'm eagerly waiting for the holiday weekend to sleep and make some lamp work beads...we'll see! Oh, also have to learn about kayaking for a photo shoot on Tuesday. I don't want it to look like dorks in boats.

Beading Outta Control!

I found this wonderful pattern for free at this site
and now I'm making one in every coming soon.
These beading projects really work for me since I live in 2 homes, but I'm hoping on etching metal this afternoon with muriatic acid at my "real" home. My master plan is to incorporate these etched pieces into bead designs. Etching instructions here (awesome site for other weird stuff too!) This method seems a touch more environmentally friendly than the PCB etchant, but still scary.
Also got my cameras ready for shooting...2 Diana's, 4 polaroids, couple 35mm...hope to get some images this week in Grand Rapids. Hoping to get some images suitable for resin casting. Another tangent!
I've gotta pack the car...its full of work stuff (full day photoshoot from Friday)but I need to play "car tetris" and fit all my stuff for the next week in there too.
