Slowly but surely I am working on adding some more pieces to my Etsy store. It’s about time too!
The first piece I added was the deep pendant from the last post. But I also finished two more pendants that are now available:
I finished a pendant that matches the cocktail ring I posted a little while ago.
Here are some pictures:
The glass is cold worked and very deep. So, the view from the side is quite dimensional, especially since some of the glass is perfectly clear.
Once I have a little time to spare, this pendant will likely end up in my Etsy store.
Lately, I have been somewhat consumed by re-photographing a lot of my pieces.
I am on a mission to make my photos better and better and, at the same time, I am starting to actually have fun with it. Odd angles are jumping out at me and since I am dealing with glass, I have started to experiment with some focused light sources to create colored shadows.
Let me show you the photo that really stood out from the other day’s session. I think I am going to use this one for an ad or marketing material at some point.
NOTE (Nov 2010):
Unfortunately, the 1000 Markets venue has sold out and any of the related links in this post do not work any longer!
There is lots of color in this kiln.
It’s going to fire over night and then these new donuts are going to be ready to have the sterling silver bails attached.
After that, all that is left to do is take some photos and list these new beauties on Etsy, Artfire and 1000 Markets.
Ali, if you read this, these are your three pendants at the bottom. Sunshine is almost back home with you =)
My first experimental donuts just came out of the kiln and I am quiet happy the way it worked out.
Since Christmas is not very far away, I thought I should share the x-mas donut with the mistletoe fine silver inlay with you. The whole time I’m writing this, I’m whistling “Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow… lalala” but I’m thinking that my tires on my car are frightful, so please don’t =)
Just for now I put on a leather cord but I am planing on either getting or making a silver bail for the donuts. The glass looks really nice but there simply is nothing better looking than a nice quality silver bail with art glass.
I will update you on the other ones as soon as things have moved along a little further.
