So correct me if I'm wrong. . .but these stones are tourmaline(?) At least I'm pretty positive they are.

oh, and they're hanging on my broken ceramic tree.
12  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Glass Drop Necklace on: February 22, 2007 08:26:10 PM
I made this over the weekend and I really love it. It's a solid blue glass bead and all sterling silver pieces. The glass is pretty clear but it has small swirls of white in it. really pretty! though the color reminds me of that necklace on titanic. . . hahaha

comments welcomed!
13  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Stitch And BOTCH / ahhhhhhhh ceramics! on: February 09, 2007 02:47:29 PM
I've been taking a ceramics class for fun with my old professor from college for the past few months. One piece I was working on that I was IN LOVE with was a bronze colored tree. It was twisty, textured, and GREAT.

I spent about 9 weeks on and off working on it. The first thing that went wrong was in my first glaze fire. The girl that loaded the kiln balanced a cone shaped piece on the top shelf on ITS POINT. WHY! Needless to say, the cone crashed down to the bottom level where my tree was and knocked off about 5 tips of the branches. I decided it could be salvaged if I reglazed the broken tips and high fired it again.

It turned out looking fine after that fire. I brought the piece home LAST night. This afternoon I call my apartment to talk to my boyfriend. His brother picks up and nonchalantly says "Oh sorry to tell you this but I broke your tree" WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!! I nearly broke into tears. But then anger took control. He knocked it over and it broke in 3 pieces. HATRED AND ANGER.

I'm going to try gluing it. But I will be forever angry when I look at it.

This is my first attempt at soldering round things, it's harder than I would have thought! I love how this one turned out. I used a few different colored flat back marbles, wrapped them in copper tape then connected everything with solder.

comments appreciated!
15  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Transparencies and Paper on: January 24, 2007 12:07:12 PM
My boyfriends father printed out a bunch of photos(which he took) for me on transparencies. Heres one of the first ones I tried.

I love how this one came out! It's rub on transfers left over from
scrapbooking, natural paper, and skeleton leaf.



If this didn't work I'll try again soon. I'm trying a new picture host!

Comments appreciated!

Glass, solder, and skeleton leaf again. I was going to take pictures of all my others but of course the camera died right in time!

I hope you like them!

So these aren't the best photos, taken with the computers camera, but I finished them tonight and wanted to get them up.

I cut various glass sizes and skeleton leaves, soldered and done!

I'll probably get better pictures up tomorrow.

comments welcome of course! Smiley
